ABOUT Kevin Spagnolo

For Kevin, everything began with learning to play the clarinet at the age of eight. Continuing through his youth, he joined the conservatory "Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali Luigi Boccherini" in Lucca, graduating in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree.

After his bachelors, he studied with Carlo Failli and Fabrizio Meloni, intensifying his learning and entering the prestigious Conservatory in Geneva. After completing his first master’s degree at HEM in Geneva in 2017, he received a second master’s degree in 2019.

In 2018, at only 22 years old, Kevin won First Prize at the Geneva International Music Competition, one of the most important and prestigious competitions in the world. He is the youngest clarinetist of all time to receive this award. In essence, it launched his career, having been invited regularly for recitals, chamber music, solo concerts, as well as important festivals and tours, ever since. He’s also won other prestigious competitions since.

Kevin has had recitals and tours with pianists such as Carlos Sanchis, Chloe Ji-yeong Mun, Thèo Fouchenneret, Lorenzo Soulés, Simone Rugani, the string-quartet Quatour Voce, and in duo with Vitor Fernandes accompanied by Serika Saito.

He has performed in some of the world’s premier venues, such as Berliner Philharmonie, Mariinsky Theater, Teatro Verdi Firenze, Montpellier Festival (Festival Radio France), among others, with some of his concerts being recorded for Radio France, Rai Radio 3, Radio Suisse Romande. Beginning in 2019, Kevin has been the Principal clarinet of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra with Martin Fröst as chief conductor.

In 2020 Kevin recorded his first soloist CD with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra and Micheal Collins. He continues to perform in a variety of capacities across the globe.
