ANDRAŽ GOLOB

Storytelling trough symphonic poems and operas is what made Andraž fall in love with orchestral music, which he so much adores. But the stories are not only limited to program music that has texts or specific titles which refer to the composition, meaning can be found in every piece of music, be it orchestral or chamber music. The meaning in music is what Andraž strives to share with listeners, especially when it comes to modern repertoire.

 

As of 2021 Andraž is the new solo bass clarinetist of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Between 2019 and 2021 Andraž has held an academy position with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

He has been performing with Orchestras such as: Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Vienna State Opera, Nürnberg Symphony Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra and Graz Philharmonic Orchestra; working with conductors such as John Williams, Christian Thielemann, Zubin Mehta,  Daniel Harding, Christoph von Dohnanyi, Christoph Eschenbach, Semyon Bychkov among others.

In 2018 he performed as a soloist with the Norddeutsche Philharmonie Rostock at Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, playing Mozarts Clarinet Concerto.

 

He is a winner of many competitions: Edmund Horwath Award 2021 (awarded to the best Wind-instrumentalist of the Academy of Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra), Boris Pergamenschikow, Val Tidone, TEMSIG, Luigi Zanuccolli,...

 

Andraž studied at University for Music and Performing Arts Graz - at first with Professor Bertram Egger and later with Gerald Pachinger. At the moment he is studying Chamber Music with Professor Martin Spangenberg at the "Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler".
