Born in 1995 in Innsbruck/Austria, he received his first lessons on the trombone at the tender age of 6 years at music schools in Innsbruck and Hall. He attended the music high school (Musikgymnasium) in Innsbruck, had additional lessons on the trombone with Lito Fontana, and continued with a very intense musical training at the Tirol State Conservatory.
Alexander Steixner studied with Prof. Daniel Bovin since 2013 at the Mozarteum in Salzburg where he will soon take his final examinations. Although still young, Alexander Steixner has made himself known as an exceptional musician. In addition to the prizes won at music contests “Prima la Musica” and the renowned Jan Koetsier contest in Munich, he participated in many master classes to round off his training.
Of course, orchestras in Tirol (a region located partially in both Austria and Italy) took note of this young particularly talented musician which resulted in his helping out in these orchestras: Symphony Orchestra Vorarlberg, Philharmony Salzburg, Tirol Symphony Orchestra Innsbruck.
HARMONIC BRASS succeeded in winning this exceptionally gifted musician from Tirol for their ensemble straight from college. And so Alexander Steixner plays the trombone with HARMONIC BRASS since the summer of 2018.
