Michael Dinnebier

Born in 1968 in the southern German town of Kempten in the Allgäu, Michael Dinnebier received early instruction on the violin from his father starting at the age of five. He studied violin at the Munich and Freiburg Music Conversatories with Kurt Guntner, Nicolas Chumachenco and Hansheinz Schneeberger as well as chamber music at the Basle Music Academy with Hatto Beyerle and Walter Levin. Michael Dinnebier took part in master classes given by Max Rostal, Shmuel Ashkenasi and Ana Chumachenco as well as chamber music master classes given by the Alban Berg, Vermeer, Guarneri, and Cleveland Quartets. He was an award winner at the Mendelssohn Competition (Berlin) and the Charles Hennen Concours (Holland).
His career took him to the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, followed by being First Concertmaster of Munich’ opera house Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz. He has been the first chair for the second violinists of the SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg since 1999.
Michael Dinnebier performs in concert with various string formations such as the christoph grund trio, the Ibert Trio—with Kirsten Ecke (harp) and Markus Tillier (cello)—and from 2001 to 2007 was the first violin of the Dimenati Quartet. He has performed in duo recitals since 2003 with pianist Angela-Charlott Bieber, with their intensive collaboration documented in live recordings for German broadcaster SWR as well as on the GENUIN label.
