About Malte Burba

Malte Burba, born 1957, comes from a family of musicians, where the groundwork for his musical sensibility was laid at an early age. He studied trumpet, piano, musicology and music education. His supplementary studies of phonetics and medicine provided him with essential knowledge and an impetus for the development of his method and for the brilliant control and mastery of his instruments. His almost unlimited mastery of brass instruments gives him additional artistic leeway for the interpretation of classical, modern, contemporary and experimental music through the use of a wide range of instruments such as the various trumpets, the euphonium, alphorn, althorn and the didgeridoo.

Not only does Malte Burba rank among the most interesting and versatile brass players of our time, he is also considered to be one of the best brass teachers worldwide. Many of his students play in leading orchestras or teach at major conservatories. One of the pillars of his pedagogy is the pioneering method developed by him for playing brass instruments which, in an absolutely logical manner, eliminates all technical and embouchure-related problems. He currently teaches at the Peter Cornelius-Konservatorium and the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität in Mainz, and at the Conservatoire de Musique Luxembourg.

His intruction manual Brass Master-Class is published by Schott Music International.
