Bio

Alessio Bidoli (Milan 1986) began his violin studies at the age of seven.

In 2006 he graduated with honours from Milan's Conservatorio "G. Verdi" under the guidance of Gigino Maestri. He then perfected himself at Haute Ecole de Musique au Conservatoire de Lausanne, Switzerland and Mozarteum Salzburg with Pierre Amoyal, at Accademia Chigiana of Siena with Salvatore Accardo, and at Imola International Academy with Pavel Berman and Oleksandr Semchuk.

In 2003, at seventeen, he performed for the first time as soloist at Teatro Signorelli in Cortona, Tuscany. In 2005, he was among the prize-winners at Rassegna Nazionale d’Archi in Vittorio Veneto.

During the 2007 concert season he played with Camerata de Lausanne led by Pierre Amoyal. With this ensemble he performed in several European cities including Martigny at Fondation Pierre Gianadda, Milan at Società dei Concerti and Marseilles during the Festival de Musique à Saint-Victor. As soloist he has performed in acclaimed concert seasons, including: MITO Settembre Musica; Società dei Concerti, Milan (Sala Verdi), Furcht- Bocconi; Amici del Loggione del Teatro alla Scala; Fondazione Musica Insieme in Bologna; Amici della Musica in Sondalo; Il Violinista sul Tetto at Auditorium Arvedi, Cremona, and Festival della Cultura, Bergamo in collaboration with Sony Classical Italia. He featured with Vittorio Sgarbi at Teatro di Chiasso, Switzerland, in the theatre project Il Fin la Maraviglia, an account of the Baroque age via images and sounds.

He has recorded a CD with pianist Stefania Mormone for classical music magazine Amadeus and four CD albums as a duo with Bruno Canino. For Sony Classical he recorded Verdi Fantasias, a CD with paraphrases by Camillo Sivori and Antonio Bazzini, and Italian Soul - Anima Italiana, a collection of works by Malipiero Petrassi and Alfredo Casella, most of which previously unrecorded. For Warner Classic he recorded a CD album with music by Stravinskìj, Prokofiev, Ravel, and Poulenc and, in October 2018, Saint-Sae¨ns complete violin and piano works, including a first recording of his youthful E flat major sonata (R103).

He has appeared as guest artist in radio broadcasts on Radio France, NDR Kultur, Radio Svizzera Italiana, RAI Radio 3, Radio Vaticana, Radio Classica, and Radio Popolare.

He is a professor of violin at Conservatorio Niccolò Piccinni, Bari.

Alessio Bidoli plays one of the violins made by his grandfather, Dante Regazzoni, who was one of Lombardy's most famous violin-makers of the 20th century. Dante Regazzoni’s workshop is now part of the Museum of Musical Instruments (MUSA) of Accademia di Santa Cecilia, Parco della Musica Auditorium, Rome. He also plays a violin made by Stefano Scarampella in 1902.

"La Calabrese di Bazzini resuscitata da Menuhin ed Estrellita di Ponce-Heifetz,
confermano in Bidoli una natura violinistica di prim’ordine
e un’immedesimazione che cattura e coinvolge chi ascolta”

Alberto Cantù (Musica – January 2016)
