Thomas Clamor is Principal Conductor of the Saxon Wind Philharmonic and Artistic Director of the Deutsche Bläserakademie. He studied trumpet and percussion at the Hochschule für Musik in Detmold. In 1986 he was accepted into the Berlin Philharmonic as its youngest member while also making a name for himself as a soloist and chamber musician in renowned ensembles. This creative work is documented by a large number of television and radio productions, as well as CD recordings with leading recording labels. In 1987 he began working as a teacher and visiting professor at German universities (Detmold, Weimar, Berlin) and at the Herbert von Karajan Foundation. Right up until today, Thomas Clamor gives international master classes and is a professor (honoris causa) at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. A high point in his teaching work is “El Sistema” of Venezuela, which now has legendary status: Here, with his support the first Latin American wind academy was established, with the Venezuelan Brass Ensemble he founded at its forefront; with this ensemble he has been enthusiastically received by audiences and critics throughout the world. Thomas Clamor has appeared as a guest artist at the most important music festivals in Europe, and among other venues has conducted in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Buenos
Aires, Tokyo, Peking, Rome, and Madrid. He is considered one of the leading conductors of brass chamber music internationally . In 2010 he founded Das Große Europäische Blechbläserensemble in Austria; as with many of his projects, here too one of his goals is to carry on cultural exchange at the highest musical level.
