Professor at Royal Notyhern College of Music (RNCM) Manchester, England.

Professor at Conservatorio “L. Campiani” in Mantua, Italy.

Stefano Canuti was born in Parma, Italy in 1961 and became familiar with music at the age of 9, thanks to the study of classical guitar. It was only at sixteen that he undertook studying bassoon. After five years of study, he graduated with top marks thanks to the invaluable teachings of O. Danzi. Stefano immediately began to collaborate as first bassoonist with the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Orchestra and soon thereafter the RAI Orchestra of Torino. Canuti played in the most important concert halls in the world: from Europe to the United States, from South America to Canada and also in China. Stefano has several soloist recordings to his credit, some of which (Fantasie di Bravura and Bassoon Images) have received esteemed credit and momentous awards. For the 25th anniversary of the International Double Reed Society (IDRS) he was invited, together with S. Azzolini and as the only European artists, to participate in the making of the commemorative CD recording the duets by Gebauer on Barber of Sevilla. His desire to play great symphonic music and his artistic maturity have brought Canuti to the sections of great orchestras as: Mahler Chamber Orchestra directed by Claudio Abbado and the Symphonica Toscanini, where the director is M°Lorin Maazel.

Canuti is also active teaching across Europe, the USA, South America and in China, currently holding masterclasses and the title of 'Bassoon Chair' at the Conservatorio di Musica “Campiani” di Mantova. In June 2003, Canuti was invited by M°Josè Antonio Abreu, as bassoon advanced teacher for the „FundaciònD el Estado para el Sistema Nacional de las Orquestas Juveniles e Infantiles de Venezuela“. From 2006 thru 2012 Stefano Canuti was Professor for bassoon at the Conservatorio Superior de Musica de Aragon, Spain. In 2006 he was appointed professor at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Recently Stefano Canuti dedicated himself to Johann Sebastian Bach's work and together with his pianist Enrique Bagaria recorded the Sonatas di Gamba BWV 1027, 1028 and 1029.
