Oboe · principal
Ulrich König was first prizewinner in the national Jugend musiziert competition and a member of the RIAS Youth Orchestra Berlin.
He studied the oboe in Berlin, Hanover and Stuttgart. During this time, he played with the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie and the European Union Youth Orchestra.
He became a member of The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen in 1988 and was thus one of the first wind players to be admitted to the orchestra as a partner. He has also performed as a soloist with the Kammerphilharmonie and has made guest appearances for example at Gidon Kremer’s Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival and Lars Vogt’s Spannungen chamber music festival at Heimbach Power Station.
Ulrich König also enjoys adapting and arranging pieces – ranging from classical works for The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen’s wind soloists to pop music for his ensemble Das ABBArtige Quartett.
In his private life he likes to unwind and relax at his country home on the outskirts of Bremen and is a keen angler.
