One of Johannes Hinterholzer's special subjects is playing on ancient instruments: baroque and hand horn. Besides many recital programs he performs with Concentus Musicus under Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Wiener Akademie under Martin Haselböck, Les Musiciens du Louvre Grenoble under Marc Minkowski and many other international baroque and classical ensembles.

Apart from his orchestra work, Johannes Hinterholzer performs regularly as a chamber musician and took part at several international chamber festivals, such as St. Gallen Festival, Festival con anima, Habuka International Music Festival Japan, etc.
