Gottfried Stoger, saxophonist and woodwinds specialist, composer,
began his musical training in Salzburg, Austria. He studied the violin as a child, following traditional training in western music. As an adolescent, he was inspired by improvisation and later made his way to New York City to explore the world of Jazz. He continued his studies in jazz programs at the Manhattan School of Music in New York and the University of Miami.
His world travels as a musician lead to creative collaborations with major folk artists from India, Brazil, Indonesia and Eastern Europe, such as Pawan Kumar, Toninho Horta, Jalu Pratitina, Romero Lubambo and Theodosii Spasov. Gottfried’s artistry is shaped by the melding of these experiences with his traditional Austrian upbringing: European Classical Music, American Jazz and Austrian Folk Music. These various styles come together to create Gottfried’s unique style as a soloist and composer.
Gottfried performed and recorded with famous jazz artists such as Kenny Barron, Kenny Werner, Marc Copland, Joe Zawinul, Joe Henderson, Toots Thielemans, David Liebman, Maria Schneider, Gerry Mulligan, Billy Hart, Gene Jackson, Will Lee, Lauren Newton, Rodney Holmes, and many more.
