Peter Steiner -- with his solo playing described as being “beautifully controlled with a vocal sound”, Italian Trombonist Peter Steiner is recognized across the world as “a new trombone star within his generation”, “playing with total control”. His performances with some of the world’s most prestigious ensembles and solo recitals across the globe have helped form him into the artist that he is today.
At the age of 23, Peter Steiner was appointed Trombonist of the Vienna State Opera and Vienna Philharmonic for the 2016-2017 season. Prior to that engagement he served as Principal Trombonist with the Colorado Symphony for the 2014-2015 season. He has performed as guest principal trombonist with the Munich Philharmonic, Staatskapelle Dresden, New York Philharmonic, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Symphony Orchestra and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
In January 2017 his debut album UNITED was released under the HELLOSTAGE Label, in collaboration with Hsiao-Ling Lin (piano) and Silver Ainomäe (cello). Following the official release, he toured the US extensively on a three week CD Release tour, giving 19 recitals at some of the most prestigious conservatories and universities in the US.
Mr. Steiner began his studies at the Music Conservatory in his hometown of Bolzano, Italy before continuing his study at The Mozarteum of Salzburg (Austria). In 2016 he graduated from The Juilliard School in New York City with a Performance Diploma. His major teachers and influences include Joseph Alessi, Warren Deck, Nitzan Haroz, and Dany Bonvin.
Mr. Steiner is a Performing Artist for the Thein Instrument Company and performs on his signature model “Bel Canto”.
