Michael Bosch was born in Munich, Germany, in 1967. At the age of six he received piano lessons from his father and soon thereafter trumpet and saxophone lessons. At 16 he studied modern oboe with Heiner Kreipl in Bonn, followed by studies on the instrument with Diethelm Jonas in Trossingen and Thomas Indermühle in Karlsruhe.
In 1994, after working for the Württembergische Philharmonie in Reutlingen for a year, he was engaged as the solo oboist of the Chursächsische Philharmonie in Bad Elster, where he performed a wide array of repertoire ranging from music of the baroque to modern music. At this time he started to become interested in historical performance, and, after leaving the orchestra in 1998 he began to study baroque oboe with Alfredo Bernardini in Amsterdam.
As a baroque oboist Michael Bosch has been a member of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin since 2002. He also works regularly with Concerto Köln, the Freiburg Barockorchester, the Stuttgarter Barockorchester, Nova Stravaganza, Cappella de’ Turchini, La Stagione Frankfurt, Das Neue Orchester and Cappela Colonienisis. Tours with these ensembles have taken him to concert venues throughout Europe as well as to concerts in North and South America and in Asia.
Since 2009 he is teacher at Hochschule für Künste Bremen, since 2016 he teaches Baroque Oboe at Hochschule für Musik und Theater Leipzig.
