Dörner studied piano in the Dutch town Arnhem (1988-89) and at the Music Academy in Cologne (1989-1996). From 1991 he studied trumpet with Malte Burba, and during his studies he collaborated with trumpeter Bruno Light in the "The Street Fighters Duo". At this time he also joined the ensembles "The Street Fighters Quartet" and "The Street Fighters Double Quartet" together with Matthias Schubert, Bruno Leicht, and Claudio Puntin.

"One of the most esteemed performers in contemporary improvisation, trumpet Axel Dörner is here portrayed in a live in studio recording which took place in Buenos Aires in 2003. His accomplices are Leonel Kaplan (trumpet) and Diego Chamy (percussion): the former uses his instrument pretty much in a Dörner-like style, so that their frantic blowing, hisses and crackles make for intense duets, while Chamy punctuates the performance with sparse, but loud banging on unidentified percussions (probably bare metal pieces). If you're already familiar with Dörner's improvisation tecniques, this disc won't take you by surprise, but it will be a nice add anyway; otherwise, it could be a good starting point."-Eugenio Maggi (Chain DLK)
