Christoph Huntgeburth, born in Münster, Germany in 1956, studied recorder and traverse flute with Winfried Michel and Hans Martin Linde at the Schola Cantorum in Basel, as well as harpsichord and general bass.
His first engagement as a teacher was at the Conservatory in Bern, Switzerland in 1982. Since 1984 he has been professor at the Universität der Kunste in Berlin. As a solo flute player he has appeared with many of Europe’s leading baroque orchestras and has participated in numerous CD recordings.
Next to baroque music he is also interested in the repertoire for the classic and romantic flute and has recorded works by Schubert, Beethoven and Mozart. Apart from the baroque flutes he creates in his own workshop, Christoph Huntgeburth plays exclusively on original instruments from his extensive flute collection.
Since 1997 Christoph Huntgeburth has been the first flutist and soloist of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.
