Biography

The Italian recorder player and conductor Giovanni Antonini (born 1965) studied flute and recorder in his native town Milan, attending the Civica Scuola di Musica and the Centre de Musique Ancienne in Geneva.

Following his studies, Giovanni Antonini became a leading recorder soloist, and has appeared with Gustav Leonhardt, Christophe Coin, and Katia & Marielle Labèque. He regularly appears at leading music festivals and has made several European tours, as well as trips to Malaysia, Japan, Canada, and the USA.

In 1985, Giovanni Antonini became a founding member of Il Giardino Armonico (The Harmonic Garden), an original instruments group founded in Milan by a select group of international-caliber period instrument players, all of whom graduated from various European universities and conservatories after specialized study in original instruments technique and interpretation and in musical research. Il Giardino Armonico was one of the earliest important original instruments ensembles in Italy, whose musical culture was not quick to embrace the “authenticity” movement.

In 1989, Giovanni Antonini became one of the directors of the organization and began to conduct the ensemble. He has appeared with them as conductor and soloist on the recorder and Baroque transverse flute. The most important festivals, such as the Salzburg Easter and Whitsunday Festival regularly invite him.
