Antje Thierbach grew up in eastern-Berlin and studied modern oboe from 1988 to 1997 in Leipzig, Würzburg and Berlin, 2003 to 2005 she studied historical performance practice and historical oboes with Katharina Arfken at the Schola Cantorum Basilensis in Switzerland.
Her main focus lies on the cooperation with renowned orchestras like the bavarian state orchestra in Munich, the concert hall orchestra in Berlin, the symphony orchestra of the SWR, the state orchestra of Karlsruhe, i.a. in the area of contemporary music. She regularly works with the Ensemble Modern, Klangforum Wien, Musikfabrik NRW, KNM Berlin, Ensemble Adapter, Camerata Variabile Basel and the Meitar Tel Aviv. Dealing with her instrument, she especially focused on new techniques, and her work with different composers concerning the transposition and notation of musical ideas specifically for oboe, led her to explore music from earlier centuries played on contemporary instruments.
She focused on the area of historical performance practice i.a. through extraordinary ensembles for old music like the Freiburger Barock Orchestra, Academy for old music in Berlin, Capella Colloniesis, the Lattencompagney Berlin, Concerto Brandenburg, Sinfonia Amadei and others.
In 2012 she took part in initiating the founding of the Ensemble ARIS & AULIS, to show her interest in old and new music, working with likeminded musicians and composers and arranging different projects. Since 2011, she teaches historical performance practice and baroque-oboe, such as new musical techniques for oboe at the academy “Hanns Eisler” in Berlin.
