Jörg Urbach

Born in Nuremberg, the musician first completed a complete program of violin studies before deciding to study the bassoon and the contra-bassoon. Jörg Urbach was taught on both instruments in the bassoon class taught by his father Walter Urbach, which he attended at the conservatory in his home town. Since 1981, Jörg Urbach has been a member of the bassoon section in the Munich Philharmonic, where he also plays contra-bassoon.
