about

my artistic career

Becoming a professional musician often means starting very early in life and is connected with much effort and passion. When I was a child, I started to learn different music instruments. I soon developed great joy playing music. I finally chose to play clarinet, that I love for its warm sound, the great range and versatility. Read more about my career below! 

Friederike von Oppeln-Bronikowski

I was born in Berlin and grew up on the island of Rügen. I studied clarinet at HfMT Hamburg with Prof. Albrecht/Prof. Franke and, for master's degree, at HMT Leipzig with Prof. Wolfgang Mäder. My skills were deepend at master classes with Prof. Francois Benda, Prof. Ralph Manno and Prof. Martin Spangenberg. During Season 2016/17, 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 I was associate solo clarinetist at Theater Vorpommern. I guested in different orchestras as solo clarinetist as Hamburger Symphoniker and Neue Lausitzer Philharmonie.

My concert activity led me to many tours at home and abroad, including Israel, China, France, Poland and India and to well-known houses like Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and Shanghai Oriental Art Center. As a clarinet teacher I worked at State Music School Hamburg, Hamburg conservatory and District Music School of North Saxony. 

 

Since my early youth I played in her own klezmer- and balkan music bands, formerly with „20vor8“ in Hamburg, currently with „Herje Mine“ and „Rozhinkes“ in Leipzig. I guested on some tours with Hamburg klezmer band „Mischpoke“. My passion for oriental music and improvisation is matching well with my third band, „Klänge der Hoffnung“. Another focus of my work is playing contemporary music. I often play at festivals like „ELBJAZZ“; „Folklorum“ and „Vielfalt ohne Grenzen“. During 2020, together with „Klänge der Hoffnung“ I was part of corona online concert series #leipzigklingtweiter of Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and am woodwind section leader of new founded International Orchestra. Currently I am living and working in Leipzig.
