Jani Sunnarborg, bassoon

Jani Sunnarborg studied the modern bassoon at the Sibelius Academy and historical bassoons and early music with Donna Agrell and Marc Vallon in the Netherlands and France, respectively. Today, he lives in Helsinki. He performs with ensembles and orchestras and gives solo recitals in various countries in Europe. He has appeared in concert and on disc with Les Musiciens du Louvre, Cercle de l'Harmonie, Anima Eterna, Les Talens Lyriques, the Halcyon Quintet, Capriccio Stravagante, the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, the Finnish Baroque Orchestra and the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra. He is also a member of the Helsinki-based Zetes quintet.

      Sunnarborg's repertoire extends from the dulcian solo music of the 16th century to early 20th-century orchestral music. He has a collection of bassoons, both modern copies and original instruments hundreds of years old. He aims to find an instrument suited to the music at hand in terms of sound, period and geographical origin.
