Antoinette Lohmann (Amsterdam, 1969) studied violin with Jean Louis Stuurop, viola with Esther van Stralen and baroque violin with Lucy van Dael at the Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam. Antoinette has always performed in a very diverse range of musical styles, among them Argentinian tango, folk music, contemporary music, musical theatre and salon music. Since 1997 she has focused on historical performance practice on violin, viola, tenor viola and viola d’amore. With Cappella Figuralis she made several recordings of mainly northern European Baroque music. Her many recordings include quartets for strings and bassoon by Franz Danzi and Franz Krommer with Jane Gower (ensemble ‘Island’).
Antoinette is also the leader of the Utrechts Barok Consort. With this group she recently performed her own reconstruction of a Bach viola concerto.
Currently she performs frequently with Musica Temprana (South American baroque/folk music), Ensemble Schönbrunn and The Netherlands Bach Society.
Antoinette teaches baroque violin and baroque viola at the Utrecht Conservatory (The Netherlands).
