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

Subsequently he furthered his studies at the Haute Ecole de Musique of the Conservatory of Lausanne, and at the Salzburg Mozarteum with Pierre Amoyal, at the Accademia Chigiana of Siena with Salvatore Accardo, and at the Accademia Internazionale of Imola with Pavel Berman and Oleksandr Semchuk.

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

In 2007 he collaborated with the Lausanne Camerata directed by Pierre Amoyal in various European cities including Martigny at Foundation Pierre Gianadda, at Società dei Concerti of Milan and in Marseilles during the Festival de Musique Saint-Victor. As a soloist he has performed in Italy in prestigious Italian concert seasons, including: MITO Settembre Musica, Società del Quartetto and Società dei Concerti of Milan, Furcht-Bocconi University, Amici del Loggione del Teatro alla Scala, Fondazione Musica Insieme of Bologna, Amici della Musica of Sondalo, Arvedi Auditorium of Cremona, Festival Paganiniano of Carro, Levanto Music Festival Amfiteatrof, Festival Internazionale della Cultura of Bergamo.

Sivori and A. Bazzini and Italian Soul-Anima Italiana, with mostly unreleased pieces by Malipiero, Casella and Petrassi; awarded at the Global Music Awards. For Warner Classics he has recorded a CD with music by Poulenc, Ravel, Stravinsky and Prokofiev and the monograph of the Sonatas for violin and piano by Saint-Saëns including the first recording ever of his juvenile E flat major sonata (R103).

Alessio Bidoli plays one of the violins made by his grandfather, Dante Regazzoni, one of Lombardy’s most famous twentieth-century violin makers, whose laboratory has become an integral part of the Museo della Liuteria (MUSA) at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in the Auditorium Parco della Musica of Rome, and a violin by Stefano Scarampella dating to 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”
