Silvia Bolognesi

Born in Siena, Silvia Bolognesi graduates in double-bass at the “R. Franci Institute” with Andrea Granai while attending Alberto Bocini’s double-bass classes at the “G.Verdi Institute” in Prato. Her approach to jazz starts by following lessons at the “Siena Jazz Foundation” with F. Spinetti and by attending summer courses (1998-1999) organized by the same Institute, studying with Furio di Castri, Ettore Fioravanti (ensemble music) and Giancarlo Gazzani (big band). As well she attends the course “High level qualification for Jazz Performers”, founded by the European Union (with Furio di Castri, Mario Raia, Stefano Zenni and Francesco Martinelli) and the “Trio course” directed by Stefano Battaglia, Paolino dalla Porta and Fabrizio Sferra. Furthermore, she participates in the “Musical Research Lab”, directed by Stefano Battaglia.

In 2003 she is selected to form part of Butch Morris Orchestra with which she performs during the 13th Edition of “Roccella Jonica Jazz Festival” and again in 2010, conduction N. 192 “Possible universe”, during the 25th Edition of the “Sant’Anna Arresi Festival”

Since 2007 she gives workshops on “conduction” together with the Open Combo musicians. In 2010 the magazine Music Jazz awards Silvia Bolognesi the “Top Jazz 2010” as new best talent and in the same year she wins the “InSound Prize 2010” in the category “Double-bass”.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
