Munzlinger, Manuel

Manuel Munzlinger was born in Berlin and studied the oboe there at the University of the Arts. As a composer, he has enriched the repertoire of his instrument with witty works full of the joy of playing. His predilection for the synthesis of classical music and elements from jazz, rock and pop music have opened up unimagined possibilities for the oboe in this entertaining genre.

Alongside the orchestral suite Ein musikalischer Campingkloß dedicated to the satirist Loriot and several chamber works, e.g. the Australian Jazz Trio for two oboes and English horn and the Suite de Philharmonixx for oboe, bassoon and percussion, he has written several virtuoso oboe concertos, e.g. the Jazz Concerto for oboe a strings and the double concertos inspired by the television series ‘The Simpsons’ entitled D’oh! and Eat the Pudding, Eat the Pudding for oboe, obligato harpsichord and strings.

He has always performed the solo part at the world premieres of his works. Critics praise the high level and exceptional virtuosity of Munzlinger’s compositions. He is highly regarded as a humorous crossover specialist.
