Domen Marinčič studied the viola da gamba with Hartwig Groth in Nuremberg (Nürnberg) and with Philippe Pierlot at the Hochschule für Musik Trossingen. He also graduated in the harpsichord with Carsten Lohff and finished postgraduate studies in thorough bass with Alberto Rinaldi. In 1997 and 2000 he won prizes at the International Bach-Abel Competition in Cöthen (Köthen). He played with the Ricercar Consort (Belgium) for a few years and, in 2004, co-founded the Slovenian early music ensemble musica cubicularis. He has performed extensively throughout Europe, in the USA, Canada, China, Vietnam and in the Middle East, notably with the Ensemble Phoenix Munich and with the recorder player Stefan Temmingh.
He also collaborates with musicians such as Emma Kirkby, Pino De Vittorio, Manfredo Kraemer, Dan Laurin, William Dongois and Edoardo Torbianelli. He has participated in well over thirty CD recordings for Accent, Aeolus, Arcana, BIS, Harmonia Mundi France, Oehms Classics, Ricercar and Sony/DHM. He has a keen interest for musicology and has reconstructed the missing parts for performances and editions of many 16th, 17th- and 18th-century works. He has given courses and workshops in Germany, Austria, Italy, Slovenia and Croatia.
