About Andreas Mendel

Andreas Mendel, is principal oboe of the Bruckner Orchestra Linz, Austria. He was born in Hannover and studied with Peter Kiggen, Professor Jochen Müller-Brincken & Prof. Michael Niesemann in Würzburg and Professor Emanuel Abbühl in Mannheim.


Mendel guests with numerous orchestras, including the Deutsches Sinfonie Orchester Berlin, Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg, Kammerorchester Basel, Hamburger Staatsoper, Camerata Salzburg and Münchner Rundfunkorchester.
