Peter Korbel, born in Bytom/Polen 1956, was one of the small number of international successfully working German guitarists. He studied Classical Guitar by Prof. Kersting at the Robert Schumann Conservatory in Düsseldorf, Germany. He passed his finals in 1985, and the exam for performing artists in 1987. Numerous TV- and radio productions in Europe and abroad document his work as well as regular international tourings, concerts – solo and chamber works –, and the frequent publication of CD recordings. Peter Korbel died in February 2017.
