A specialist in historically informed performance practices, Arthur Schoonderwoerd is a Dutch pianist who plays an array of early keyboard instruments that are well-suited to the repertoire of the 18th and 19th centuries. A student of Herman Uhlhorn and Alexander Warenberg at the Utrecht Music Academy, he received his diplomas in education, concerto, and chamber music between 1990 and 1993, and pursued studies in musicology at the University of Utrecht. He received scholarships to study with Jos van Immerseel in the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris, and in 1996 he was named Juventus Laureate by the Council of Europe. Schoonderwoerd regularly appears as a soloist and with several chamber ensembles, most notably the Cristofori Ensemble, which has toured the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, and Italy. He teaches fortepiano and chamber music at the Conservatory of Barcelona.
