viola, tenor violin, viola d’amore
Luc Gysbregts studied violin at the conservatory in Antwerp. In 1989 he received the first prize for viola and a year later for chamber music at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels.

In 1991 he worked for the Royal Flanders Philharmonic Orchestra. During this time he continued his studies at the Lemmensinstituut in Leuven, where he successfully finished his higher diploma for viola in 1993.

Since 2000 he has been working as a freelancer to focus more closely on the historically informed performance. Since 1998 has been a member of Anima Eterna under the leadership of Jos van Immerseel. In 2005 he co-founded the successful Baroque orchestra B’Rock. 

He was and is also performing with other ensembles, like Les Agrémens, Il Fondameto, Collegium Brugense, De Profundis and the Flemish Opera, to list only a few. These Ensembles have brought him to several European countries, to Japan, Brazil, China, the US and South Africa.

Through the years the number of his musical instruments grew: so he does not only play the modern and Baroque viola, but also the tenor violin – his is a copy of the early Andrea Amati (1574).

He also plays the viola d’amore - the instrument he plays today is a copy of Johannes Rauch (1742). Recently he played it at the Brussels Opera House `La Monnaie` in Handel’s Orlando together with René Jacobs.
