Born: April 11, 1956 - Graz, Austria

The Austrian flautist, Hansgeorg Schmeiser, began his musical studies with Gottfried Hechtl at the Musikhochschule of his home town of Graz. He then continued his studies with Alain Marion in Paris and with Wolfgang Schulz at the Musikhochschule Vienna, where he gained his diploma with distinction in 1982. He attended further master-classes with Aurèle Nicolet, Alain Marion and Karl-Heinz Zoeller. He is a multiple prize-winner of the Austrian Jeunesse competitions.
