Jesper Busk Sørensen’s first instrument was the euphonium, but he decided to take up the trombone because he loved its warm, opulent tone. He was so taken with its versatility as one of the orchestra’s most powerful yet mellowest instruments. Jesper Busk Sørensen has been a member of the Berlin Philharmonic since 2009 and has toured most of the world as an orchestra musician, soloist, and guest teacher at various music conservatories. He graduated from the Royal Music Academy of Music, Aarhus in 2005. In addition, he undertook further training with Chicago Symphony Orchestra trombonist Michael Mulcahy at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. His first professional engagement was in 2002 as the second trombone – later becoming principal – of the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra. As a chamber player, Jesper Busk Sørensen is a member of the Danish Trombone Quartet, which has given the world premiere of several contemporary works. He is also a member of the Berlin Philharmonic Brass. Jesper Busk Sørensen was appointed Honorary Professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in 2015.
