Jesper Tjaerby Korneliusen
Pavillon, theatre hall 1
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.
