Marcel Ponseele studied oboe and chamber music at the conservatories of Bruges, Ghent, and Brussels. Subsequently he applied himself to the baroque oboe with plenty of verve and in 1981 became laureate of the international competition Musica Antiqua in Bruges. Ever since Marcel Ponseele has been playing in many baroque orchestras, among them La Petite Bande, The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, and La Chapelle Royale. With conductor Philippe Herreweghe he founded L’Orchestre des Champs-Elysées, taking care of the subsection Harmonie des Champs-Elysées himself. With Jan De Winne he founded il Gardellino in 1988, serving as artistic director. Marcel Ponseele enjoys a solid international reputation as a baroque specialist and is in great demand as a soloist for concerts and CD recordings for various labels. He has recorded about everything that Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart and many others ever wrote for oboe. In addition he also enjoys playing chamber music. With his brother Francis he makes meticulous replicas that are recognised worldwide as models in their genre.
