Duo Steiner-Hochwartner Featuring Trombonist Peter Steiner and Pianist Constanze Hochwartner

Duo Steiner-Hochwartner
Lani Hall

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,” who “plays with total control.” Together with Constanze Hochwartner (piano/organ), as Duo Steiner-Hochwartner, the pair perform a guest artist recital at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music as part of their three-month world tour of the United States, Europe, Asia and South America.

At the age of 23, Peter Steiner was appointed Trombonist of the Vienna State Opera and Vienna Philharmonic for the 2016-2017 season. Steiner has since performed as guest trombonist with the Munich Philharmonic, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Constanze Hochwartner received her first piano lessons at the young age of three, before being accepted into a class for gifted students in 2005 at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria. After graduating from high school, she switched her focus from piano to organ and started her studies in concert performance for organ with Univ. Prof. Ulrich Walther. Simultaneously, she studied instrumental and vocal pedagogy with an additional focus on piano and graduated in the Fall of 2017. In October 2017 she started her Master's degree studying with Karin Tafeit (organ) at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz. She has also been mentored by Univ. Prof. Gunther Rost.
