Instruments: Baroque violin | Director

The real surprise comes from the orchestra pit where Johannes Pramsohler conducts his Ensemble Diderot with a refinement worthy of the greatest.” LE FIGARO

Holding a PhD in Historically Informed Performance from the Royal Academy of Music and with an extensive discography acclaimed by international critics, Johannes Pramsohler is currently one of the most creative forces in the Early Music scene.

Born in South Tyrol and now living in Paris, he trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and at the Salzburg Mozarteum and has become one of the most versatile representatives of the profession, alternating his roles as artistic director and leader of Ensemble Diderot, with that as a guest both as a soloist and as a conductor at the head of numerous groups.

Since 2008, Johannes has had the honour of owning Reinhard Goebel’s violin, a P. G. Rogeri made in 1713.
