Benedikt Dinkhauser


Place of Birth: Innsbruck

Benedikt Dinkhauser grew up in Wels, where in early years he started his musical education on the piano. At the age of 14 he developed a passion for the bassoon, which led him to move to Vienna to attend the music grammar school and start his studies at the Konservatorium Wien with Prof. Michael Werba at the age of 16. During the time of grammar school he joined several renowned youth orchestras (a.o. Jeunesse Orchestra Vienna, Bundesländer Philharmonic, Attersee Institute Orchestra) and won the first prize in the nationwide competition "Prima la Musica" in 1997.

Besides attending masterclasses with Richard Galler, Gustavo Nunez and Pascal Gallois he continued his studies at the University for Music and performing Arts Vienna with Prof. Stepan Turnovsky in 2001.

Solo performances with orchestra, e.g. of Mozarts bassoon concerto and Sinfonia Concertante, and recitals (with piano and guitar) are an important part of his musical life as well as chamber music in ensembles like:

inPHILtrio with his philharmonic colleagues Clemens Horak (ob.) and Matthias Schorn (cl.)
freihaus4tel quartett (2 clarinettes, bassoon and double bass)
qWIENtett (woodwind quintet)

ensemble eis (ensemble for contemporary music)

Besides private teaching Benedikt Dinkhauser held masterclasses at the Juilliard School and the Manhattan School of Music in New York and at the Toho University Vienna - Tokyo. He always directs special attention to mental training in preparation for an important musical event (e.g. audition).
