After first trying his hands on not little less than 5 instruments, including accordion, piano, organ, cello and horn, he took up playing trumpet when he was 14. Later at University the trumpet became his main subject. However, Ludwig Güttler has always been relentless in his pursuit for versatility.
He gained experience on the trumpet - an instrument to this day known for its solemn brilliance - attending shadowing sessions with vocals, piano players and violinists, thus laying the foundation for his sophisticated sound which has earned him international acclaim. Ludwig Güttler is not only an instrumentalist with a wide-ranging repertoire covering brilliant baroque trumpet concerts and piano and trumpet works from Honegger or Hindemith. His enthusiasm to research incessantly in libraries or archives drives him to enrich and expand his repertoire for the trumpet with forgotten or hitherto unknown works.
