Following his clarinet studies at the Conservatory “Gioacchino Rossini” of Pesaro in 2000, Francesco Spendolini continued his specialization in historical clarinet, first in Italy with Luca Lucchetta at the Conservatory “Arrigo Pedrollo” in Vicenza, and later on in Switzerland under the guidance of Pierre-André Taillard at the “Schola Cantorum Basiliensis”, where he also obtained two Masters of Arts with honours in Specialized Musical Performance - Early Music (Baroque-Classical and Late Classical-Romantic, both focused on the Historical Performance Practise).
Besides performing during prestigious international festivals both as a soloist, chamber and orchestral musician in Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, England, Scotland, Belgium, Portugal, Turkey, and Argentina, Francesco Spendolini has shown a keen interest in discovering unknown works and extending the clarinet repertoire, e.g. with his own adaptations and through cooperation with various chamber music ensembles.
Francesco regularly works with period instrument orchestras and ensembles from all over Europe and is a much asked for clarinet player at various festivals, both as a soloist, chamber and orchestral musician.
