Solo Trumpet

Jeppe Lindberg Nielsen

My education: Det Jyske Musikkonservatorium, Bachelor. Hochschule für Musik Karlsruhe, Erasmus. The Royal Danish Academy of Music, candidate.

My favorite musical composition: There are many; among them are Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet, Strauss’s operas, Mahler’s symphonies and Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony.

My greatest musical experience: Playing Daphnis and Chloe and Rachmaninov’s 2nd Symphony with the Kongelige Kapel.

My most memorable/funny/unusual experience in the Kapel: The first opera I played in 2013, Verdi’s Othello. It was crazy!

When I’m not playing in the Kapel: I play chamber music, and am a member of the brass quintet Danish Chamber Brass. I like watching football and following my favourite danish team live at the stadium. In addition, I appreciate good food and wine.
