Andreas Willwohl was born in Erfurt in 1975 and started to play the violin at the age of six. At the time of his graduation at the Specialist School for Music at Belvedere Castle in Weimar he changed over to the viola and began studying under Alfred Lipka. In 1996 he commenced his studies at the "Franz Liszt" Musikhochschule in Weimar continuing a year later at the "Hans Eisler" Musikhochschule in Berlin under the same teacher.
Of great artistic incentive for him was the support of, inter alios, Christoph Poppen and Kim Kashkashian; in chamber music Norbert Brainin (from the Amadeus Quartet), Eberhard Feltz, Walter Levin (from the La Salle Quartet), and Andras Keller and the Alban Berg Quartet.
Andreas Willwohl has appeared at international music festivals such as the Schleswig-Holstein music festival, the Castle Concerts in Thun, the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, The Thuringian Bach Weeks, and has played with Thomas Brandis, Wolfgang Böttcher, Tanja Becker-Bender, Michael Sanderling, Sebastian Klinger, Oliver Kern and Dimitri Ashkenazy. Andreas Willwohl received a study grant from the German People's Foundation for Study, and also from the Yehudi Menuhin foundation, 'Live music now'.
Having been repeatedly invited to be senior coach at the Kronberg Academy's chamber music project 'Together With Music', he now devotes more and more of his time to teaching. Under the direction of Marek Janowski, Andreas Willwohl has since 2001 been principal violist in the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra.
