An infant's racket on his mother's cooking pots signalled the start of Peter Sadlo's
clear and extraordinary career, all based on his exceptional talent in the area of percussion.
At the age of twelve years, he began studies at the prestigious "Meistersinger-Konservatorium"
in Nürnberg. Shortly after, another decisive event occurred in the life of the talented drummer;
acceptance into the "Musikhochschule Würzburg" where Sadlo met the doyen of
german percussion art at that time, Siegfried Fink, who would
support and mentor him. In 1982, when Peter Sadlo was only 20 years old, he accepted the
position of solo timpanist at the Munich Philharmonic. There,for the
second time, Peter Sadlo would meet a master who would strongly influences his future development:
Sergiu Celibidache, the charismatic conductor of the Munich Philharmonic. In time, the two
would develop a powerful common musical understanding.
