Herbert Maderthaner


Place of Birth: Windhag bei Waidhofen an der Ybbs
Membership in the Vienna State Opera Orchestra: 2010
Membership in the Association of the Vienna Philharmonic: 2013

Herbert Maderthaner was born on June 13, 1981 as the sixth of seven children in Windhag bei Waidhofen an der Ybbs, and beginning at the age of seven studied clarinet with his brother, Thomas. A short time later he was playing along with his siblings in the town band of Windhang under the direction of his father, whereupon he was so fascinated with the sound of the oboe that in 1996 he decided to study the instrument with Johannes Strassl at the Musikschule Waidhofen an der Ybbs. Shortly thereafter he was playing in the local chamber orchestra and in 2000 gained a place in the class of Thomas Höniger at the Vienna Conservatory. In 2005, Herbert Maderthaner received his first engagement with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, where he worked for five years on second oboe and English horn while at the same time preparing himself for the next step in his career. With another  successful audition, he secured an engagement with the Vienna State Opera Orchestra, where he began (also on second oboe and English horn) on January 1, 2010.

Since the beginning of his musical career, Herbert Maderthaner has dedicated himself intensely to chamber music. Along with Matthias Schulz (Flute, Stage Orchestra of the Vienna State Opera), Daniel Ottensamer, David Seidel (bassoon, Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra) and Jonas Rudner (horn, Lower Austrian Tonkünstler Orchestra), he founded the "BAOLE Quintet Vienna" and also worked with the "Wiener Virtuosen". He belongs to the "Theophil Ensemble" founded in 2008 by Matthias Schorn, which is composed of members from various Viennese orchestras and named after Theophil Hansen, the Danish architect of the Vienna Musikverein building.
