Gabriele Cassone is one of the most versatile trumpet soloists of our time. Not only does he perform on a variety of period instruments, including natural trumpet, keyed trumpet, and alto trumpet, he is also a prominent exponent of contemporary music.
Sir John Eliot Gardiner named Cassone principal trumpet of the English Baroque Soloists for the entire cycle of J. S. Bach's Cantatas and the Second Brandenburg Concerto. Cassone was personally selected by Luciano Berio to record his Sequenza X for solo trumpet, and to premiere his Kol-Od, performed with the Ensemble Intercontemporain under the direction of Pierre Boulez.
Cassone serves on the faculties of the Conservatory of Novara in Italy, the Hochschule in Lucerne, Switzerland, and the Center for Advanced Musical Studies/Chosen Vale International Trumpet Seminar in the United States.
