Andreas Wittmann began his studies at the University of Music in Munich with Manfred Clement and later continued at Berlin University of the Arts with Hansjörg Schellenberger.
In Munich, he also studied conducting with Hermann Michael, and participated several times in the conducting courses of Sergiu Celibidache. This was followed by a scholarship to the Orchestra Academy from 1985 to 1986 and subsequently his engagement with the Berliner Philharmoniker. In 1988, he founded the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet together with four of his colleagues.
For several years, he was principal oboist with the Bayreuth Festival Orchestra and makes guest appearances as a soloist, chamber musician and as a teacher both in Germany and abroad. For many years he has been an instructor with the Orchestra Academy, whose management he took over in July 2013.
He is currently also a regular guest conductor of the Orquesta Sinfonica Salvador de Bahia in Brazil. In addition, he conducts, among others, the Sinfonie Orchester Berlin and the Berliner Sibelius Orchester. Andreas Wittmann loves good food and wine and very much enjoys going to the theatre.
