"Thanks to the raw materials of the Bonazza laboratory I could explored new dimensions of a baroque bassoon's sound.
I enormously appreciate the competencies of this company and its interest towards the product enhancement".


Sergio Azzolini


Sergio Azzolini is largely known as the most important bassoon player in Europe.

He was born in Bolzano in 1967 and studied the bassoon from 1978 to 1985 at the Claudio Monteverdi Conservatory of Music in Bolzano under the guidance of Romano Santi. After this, until 1989, he studied with Klaus Thunemann at the Hannover Advanced School of Music. While still studying he was principal solo bassoon of the European Community Youth Orchestra.

Sergio Azzolini has attracted attention on himself through the many awards received in the international competitions of Ancona, Prague, Belgrade, Martigny, Bonn and M√ľnchen. The EMI record company has booked him for a number of chamber music productions.

Besides his regular solo activity, Sergio Azzolini concentrates intensely on his ensemble Il Proteo, is a member of the Ma'alot Quintetts, of the Sabine Meyer Bläserensemble, of the Maurice Bourgue Trio, and several musical groups with original instruments. Following his activity as professor at the Stuttgart Advanced State School of Music, since 1998 he teaches the bassoon and chamber music at the Basle State Academy of Music.
