A musical journey from Prague to Vienna. He has had an illustrious career as principal bassoonist, and his baroque melodies resonate with the heart. He also provides light to those following him as an educator.

Born in Prague in 1959 to a musical family, he moved to Vienna with his parents immediately after the Soviet Union's military invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968. He studied with Karl Elberger at the Vienna State University of Music and Performing Arts, then joined the Vienna State Opera Orchestra in 1978 and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in 1988.

Since 1985, he has been active as principal bassoonist under the direction of many conductors, including Herbert von Karajan, Leonard Bernstein, Karl Böhm, Carlos Kleiber, and Georg Solti. He is also passionate about chamber music and has performed with groups such as the Vienna Octet and the Vienna Virtuosen at prestigious music festivals such as the Salzburg Festival and the Schubertiade Festival, and has recorded numerous CDs. .

He was also invited to participate in concert tours as a baroque bassoonist with the Concentus Musicus led by Nicolaus Harnoncourt. As a soloist, he has performed with Christian Thielemann in the Vienna Philharmonic's regular concerts and on concert tours in Europe, and has also performed with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, etc. .

Since 2001, he has also been teaching younger students as a professor at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna.

A public bassoon lesson (face-to-face) with Stefan Turnowski, a professor at the world-renowned Vienna University of Music, Austria, will be held on Wednesday, February 2024, 2!

A limited number of people can receive direct instruction from Dr. Stefan Turnowski from the &Vision Hall in Ochanomizu, Tokyo, or from your home (online attendance is also available). If you are considering studying abroad as a bassoon in Austria (studying abroad in Vienna), you can get a foothold in studying abroad. When deciding where to study abroad, the lessons taught by professors at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna will be a helpful guide. The professor would be happy to share various music with everyone in Japan. Anyone can take this course, regardless of age or level. It is especially suitable for those who are thinking about studying abroad as a bassoonist, preparing for competitions and auditions, improving their level, and those who simply love music! Don't miss this opportunity! Due to the time difference, this event will be held with a very limited number of participants.
* Private lessons are recommended for those who do not want to publish lessons or those who do not meet the schedule. If you are interested, please contact an And Vision Counselor.

If you haven't taken lessons yet, you can listen to them. There is so much you can learn by not only playing for yourself, but also watching other people's lessons. In fact, many students in Europe study through listening. It is also an opportunity to listen to the performances of many other people, and through the lessons of various people, you will be able to better understand the teaching method and personality of the teacher. Musical instruments other than bassoon can also enjoy the atmosphere of overseas classes, so please feel free to join us. The teaching method of overseas professors is completely different from that of Japan. In particular, the main focus is to "enjoy and express music more", so the points to teach vary from student to student. Isn't it a big point for those who are aiming to study abroad or become a professional in the future to feel how the points of teaching are different from those in Japan? Even if you are not satisfied with Japan, it will be an opportunity to think about studying abroad.

For those who are thinking of studying abroad in Austria (Vienna) or other countries in Europe, this is a trial period for studying abroad while staying in Japan. Consider the possibility of studying abroad in Europe.

It's a great chance to meet an overseas teacher while you are in Japan!
Just thinking does not open the door to your dreams. There is only action. Don't miss this opportunity!
