Sergio Azzolini

Classical

Sergio Azzolini was born in 1967 in Bolzano, Italy. He first studied bassoon with Romano Santi at the Claudio Monteverdi Conservatory in his home town and went on to further studies with Klaus Thunemann at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hanover. While finishing his studies he simultaneously held the position of first bassoonist in the European Union Youth Orchestra.

Among the numerous awards that Sergio Azzolini has received can be mentioned those from the “Carl Maria von Weber”, “Prague Spring” and “ARD” Munich compétitions. Parallel to his work on modern bassoon he pursued research into Baroque sound and aesthetics, familiarising himself with historically informed performance practices and working not only with copies of historical instruments but also with authentic period instruments, of which he has a large collection.
As a baroque bassoon player he is a member of the Ensemble Baroque de Limoges, directed by Christophe Coin and appears regularly as soloist with L’Aura Soave Cremona, Sonatori della Gioiosa Marca and La Stravaganza Köln. He is also a member of the ensemble Parnassi Musici.
Between 2002 and 2007 he was artistic director of the Kammerakademie Potsdam. With this orchestra he explored and performed music ranging from Baroque to contemporary, including many premier performances and three operas: Antonio Vivaldi’s La fida ninfa, Le nozze di Dorina by Baldassaree Galuppi and in 2010 Montezuma by Carl Heinrich Graun. In 2011 he will again direct the Kammerakademie Potsdam in a fully staged production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro.
Sergio Azzolini has recorded extensively. His CDs show extraordinary stylistic diversity and have been honoured with many prestigious awards. He is currently working on a complete recording of the thirty-nine bassoon concertos by Antonio Vivaldi for the Naïve Vivaldi Edition. The first volume, released in 2010, was awarded a 'Diapason d'or', a 'Choc de Classica' and, in Germany, got a 'Echo Klassik' award.
Since 1998 he has held the post of professor of bassoon and chamber music at the Hochschule für Musik in Basel.
