Hans van Loenen was born in Heerlen, on the Dutch-German border in the province of Limburg (Maastricht). His father was a violinist, and, though this became his first instrument, his interest in wind instruments was greater. At the age of twelve he began flute lessons with the conductor Piet Stalmeyer, transferring at the age of sixteen to Professor Hermann at Aachen, where he also played in the opera orchestra. He later studied under the great Hubert Barwahser at the Maastricht Conservatory, and, joining the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra in 1965, has been principal flute since 1969. He has played solo concertos many times with this and other Dutch orchestras, and specialises in performance on the wooden Baroque transverse flute.
