Katharina Spreckelsen (oboe)

Katharina Spreckelsen is one of the leading baroque oboists of her generation. She was born in Germany and after studying with the late Michel Piguet in Basle, Katharina moved to London for further studies with Paul Goodwin at the Royal College of Music.

She soon became a much sought-after player with many European Ensembles. Katharina was principal oboist with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, the Gabrieli Consort & Players and Florilegium and she now divides her time between The English Concert, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Christian Curnyn’s Early Opera Company.

Katharina often performs and records with singers such as Mark Padmore, Thomas Quasthof, Ian Bostridge, Andreas Scholl, David Daniels and Rolando Villazon. Her performances as an obbligato soloist are frequently paired with solo concerto performances.

Katharina has recorded extensively. She can be heard on many of Ton Kopman’s Bach Cantata recordings. With the Gabrieli Consort & Players she has recorded Oratorios by Handel, sacred works by J S Bach and Haydn’s Creation. With The English Concert she appears notably on discs with David Daniels, Elizabeth Watts, Danielle De Niese and Lucy Crowe.

Katharina is professor of baroque and classical oboe at the Royal Academy of Music. Over the past twenty years she has fostered a new generation of baroque oboists, many of whom are now her colleagues.
