Masterclass

What is it about the much-men­tio­ned “Ger­man tim­pani sound”?
As a na­tive Dane, Je­sper Kor­ne­li­usen, princi­pal tim­pa­nist of the Ham­burg State Opera, has perhaps pur­sued this ques­tion par­ti­cu­larly in­ten­si­vely.
In his mas­ter­class, he would the­re­fore like to talk pri­ma­rily about sound pro­duc­tion: How is the tim­pani sound crea­ted? What is the func­tion of one’s own body? How can I trans­late my idea of sound into play­ing? How do I find my own sound ideal?
Je­sper will try to an­s­wer these and many more ques­ti­ons in his course.

Je­sper Tjærby Kor­ne­li­usen was born in Co­pen­ha­gen in 1972. He gra­dua­ted from the Royal Da­nish Con­ser­va­tory of Mu­sic un­der Bent Lyll­off. In 1996–1999 he was a mem­ber of the Gus­tav Mah­ler Youth Or­ches­tra, where he played un­der Clau­dio Ab­bado, Pierre Bou­lez, Kent Na­gano, Franz Wel­zer-Moost, Seiji Ozawa and Si­meon Bickov, among others. Je­sper Tja­erby Kor­ne­li­usen was first princi­pal tim­pa­nist in the Phil­har­mo­nic Or­ches­tra of South West­pha­lia, and since 2004 he has been princi­pal tim­pa­nist in the Phil­har­mo­nic State Or­ches­tra of Hamburg.

In ad­di­tion, Je­sper has been play­ing re­gu­larly in the Bay­reuth Fes­ti­val Or­ches­tra for several years.
