Carbonare lived in Paris for many years, holding the position of first clarinet soloist in the National Orchestra of France. This position enabled him to play for all of the most important directors of modern times, some of whom opened the way for him to collaborate as first clarinetist with other important orchestras: he has appeared with Lorin Maazel and the Bayerischer Rundfunk in Munich, with S.Osawa and the Word Orchestra, with Claudio Abbado and the Berliner Philarmoniker; in the near future he will collaborate with the New York Philarmonic Orchestra. He has won many prizes in competitions in Prague, Geneva, Toulouse, Munich and Paris. He has also performed with the Suisse Romande of Geneva, The National Orchestra of Spain, the Oslo Philarmonic, the Bayerischer Rundfunk and the orchestras of the RAI of Turin and of S.Cecilia. Subsequently he made his debut at the Suntory Hall in Tokyo and at Carnegie Hall in New York, performing the concerts of KM Von Weber as director/soloist. He played this double role in the recording of the international tour. He is regularly invited by the most important musical conservatories around the world to hold master classes (Paris, Barcelona, Juilliard School, the University of Tokyo and several American universities including Harvard). As a member of the Quintet Bibiena, he also performs chamber music regularly. His musical interests have always extended beyond “classical” music, and for the last several years he has performed in Jazz and Klezmer programs. Invited by Claudio Abbado personally, Alessandro Carbonare appeared as first clarinetist in the orchestra of Festival of Lucerne and in the Orchestra Mozart. He recently completed a recording with Orchestra Mozart of the concert K622 on the basset clarinet under the direction of M° Abbado for Deutsche Grammophon.
