“Born in South Tyrol, Johannes Pramsohler completed his modern violin studies at the Conservatory ‘Claudio Monteverdi' in Bozen before going to London to study with Jack Glickman at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. During this time he started taking lessons on the Baroque violin from Rachel Podger, with whom he then continued his studies.
In 2005 Johannes moved to Paris where to study at the Conservatoire National de Région with Patrick Bismuth, and has since gone on to establish himself as a successful soloist and chamber musician, performing throughout Europe and playing with many of the leading period instrument orchestras. He was a member of the European Union Baroque Orchestra and is regularly invited to play with Concerto Köln, Les Arts Florissants, The English Concert and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. International concert tours have taken him to all major European concert halls, to North and South America and to the Near East.
Alongside his work as artistic director and leader of the International Baroque Players and with his own chamber music group Ensemble Diderot Johannes is enjoying an increasingly busy career as a recitalist and orchestra leader; he has given solo concerts at major festivals in France, Spain, Germany and Italy. Johannes regularly leads Le Concert d'Astrée (Emmanuelle Haïm) and the Britten-Pears Baroque Orchestra and recorded extensively for Sony, Channel Classics and Virgin.
Future engagements include solo recitals at festivals in Europe and his London South Bank debut with violin concertos by Leclair. In January 2011 he will be on stage at the Paris Opéra Garnier in a new production of Handel's Giulio Cesare directed by Laurent Pelly and conducted by Emmanuelle Haim. March 2011 will see him directing the Polish baroque orchestra Arte dei Suonatori in a programme of Heinichen, Bach and Telemann concertos.
Since October 2007 Johannes has played on the famous ‘P. G. Rogeri' from 1713, previously owned by Reinhard Goebel.”
