JOHN FALCONE

Bassoon | Alto Sax

Born in New York in 1962, Falcone began his musical studies on the saxophone at the age of 10; soon after picking up the bassoon as well. He has degrees in Bassoon from Carnegie-Mellon University (PA) and The Juilliard School (NY) and has played with the New York City Opera, the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and the Broadway musicals “Cats” and “The Secret Garden.” Since 1991 he has held the position of Co-principal Bassoon with the Symphony Orchestra of the Principality of Asturias (Spain). As composer, he has penned a long list of published works (Trevco Music, USA; musicforbrass.com, Canada).

 

As saxophonist he has recorded two CDs with his quartet “John Falcone Group”: "Rincones" and . . . "Como Un Árbol". As bassoonist he has recorded with the progressive rock band “SENOGUL” and the experimental musician Pablo Canalís. In 2014 he released his first CD as solo bassoonist: In the Wabe with a focus on free improvisation. This album has been very appreciated by Contemporany & Experimental Music critics, being part of ReR Megacorp list of works in distribution, carefully selected by Chris Cutler (Henry Cow, Art Bears...). Falcone is also conductor of the “Bandina” of Noreña (Spain) and founder of the professional improviser’s orchestra “IMPROVISO.”
