Biography

Douglas Lundeen received his DMA in horn performance from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory, where he was mentored in his DMA studies by the great American soloist and natural horn pioneer Lowell Greer. He won first prize for solo natural horn in the 1987 American Horn Competition and has played principal horn with period instrument orchestras in New York City, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Vancouver and Washington, D.C., under such conductors as Hogwood, Norrington, Brüggen, Parrott, and Koopman. He has been a featured recitalist and master clinician at many symposia and workshops of the International Horn Society, where he is known for advocating a vocal approach to the instrument, sensitive to international styles.

Dr. Lundeen originally trained as an opera singer studying with artists from the Metropolitan Opera, and he tours internationally with Brass Roots Trio, featuring both his instrumental and vocal talents. He has recordings on the Sony, Newport Classics, Musical Heritage Society, and Centaur labels and recently released a French recital CD on the antique Selmer piston-valve horn, Le cor français authentique. This album has been received as “100% French” by players there and a was given a “Grand Bravo” by the Belgian virtuoso, Francis Orval.
