• Reinhold Friedrich

    is one of the most renowned
    trumpeters of this time

  • Reinhold Friedrich

    plays the shofar,
    the curved
    ram’s horn

  • Reinhold Friedrich’s

    intonation on
    the trumpet
    is magical


Reinhold Friedrich is undoubtedly one of those artists who can play whatever they want: It is always fantastic; music refined to the highest degree.

Jesko Schulze-Reimpel

Reinhold Friedrich, who plays seven different trumpets, flugelhorn, antelope horn as shofar, presents himself as a great master, nothing less than a trumpet god!

Jascha Nemtsov

The Musician

For Reinhold Friedrich, early music and new music belong together – without contradicting each other. He has performed on period instruments with Capriccio Basel, the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées and the Vienna Academy. Equally, he has premiered many contemporary works by Wolfgang Rihm, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Carola Bauckholt, Hans Werner Henze, Adriana Hölszky, Nicolaus A. Huber, Rebecca Saunders and Caspar Johannes Walter.

The Lecturer

Reinhold Friedrich is Professor of Trumpet at Musikhochschule Karlsruhe, a sought-after lecturer for master classes worldwide and an honorary professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London, at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, in Hiroshima/Japan and at the Escuela Superior de Musica REINA SOFIA in Madrid, the only private college offering a chamber music class for wind instruments.
Friedrich’s former students have won awards at important international competitions and hold leading positions with major orchestras. A growing number of them already hold professorships.
