Biography: 

Originally from Quebec, Pierre-Antoine Tremblay pursues a career of horn player specialized in early music practice. His musical activities over the past few years have led him to about forty countries across the world, working with renowned conductors such as Frans Brüggen, Philippe Herreweghe, Fabio Biondi, René Jacobs, Pablo Heras-Casado, Teodor Currentzis and Raphaël Pichon. He plays regularly with top period-instrument ensembles such as Europa Galante (Italy),
the Freiburger Barockorchester (Germany), and Arion Baroque Orchestra (Canada). He also occasionally performs with Anima Eterna (Belgium), Concerto Copenhagen
(Denmark), the Festspielorchester Göttingen (Germany), and Les Idées Heureuses (Canada).

Recent activities include a Chinese tour of Bach’s First Brandenburg Concerto with Concerto Copenhagen, Rameau's Hippolyte et Aricie at the Berliner Staatsoper with Sir Simon Rattle, as well as two concerts at the Montreal Bach Festival: Bach's B-minor Mass with Arion and Graupner Cantatas with Les Idées Heureuses.

In 2014 he founded in Barcelona the Dialoghi Ensemble, with whom he recorded for Harmonia Mundi the Mozart and Beethoven quintets.

Pierre-Antoine was invited to give masterclasses in Tokyo, Brussels, Madrid, Singapore, Amsterdam, and Quebec City.

He obtained a Master’s Degree in Early Music from the Conservatory of Amsterdam, where he studied with Teunis van der Zwart.
