2nd solo Trumpet

Lars Husum

Education: Bachelor in trumpet from the Royal Danish Academy of Music.

My favorite musical composition: It varies from day to day, but at the moment it is probably Bach’s B minor Mass or Sibelius’ 7th symphony. In the opera repetoire I am very fond of Wagner.

My greatest musical experience: Playing with the orchestra under Sir Simon Rattle.

My most memorable/funny/unusual experience in the Kapel: It would have to be Parsifal with Hartmut Haenchen.

When I’m not playing in the Kapel: When I’m not playing with my own orchestra I enjoy helping out in other orchestras as well as playing other types of lighter music. In addition I enjoy a good glass of wine or porter in good company.
