MY
Biogra-
phy







A musician between two worlds, Diana Baroni – flautist and singer – is currently performing at the most prestigious baroque and new traditional music festivals.

Originally from Argentina, born near Rio Parana a Rosario, as a child she began her studies in numerous instruments: guitar, piano, singing and flute. At the age of 14, she turned herself definitively toward the transverse flute, which opened a prestigious repertoire of classical music and led her to win a scholarship to study with the Yehudi Menuhin Academy in Gstaad, Switzerland.
Returning to Buenos Aires, she developed her flautist career via a contemporary repertoire and the productions of the Experimentation Center of Teatro Colón.
Between contemporary and classical music, an eclectic journey began.

In 1997 she decided to return to Europe, to study historic interpretation in Basel, at the heart of the prestigious ‘Schola Cantorum’ and her traverse in Amsterdam with Wilbert Hazelzet and Jed Wentz. Regular invitations came about with the ensembles The Rare Fruits Council, ENSEMBLE VEDADO , Musiciens du Louvre, Ensemble Stravaganza, Orchestra Svizzera Italiana, as well as her participation in the founding of the ensemble Café Zimmermann. Performing as solo flautist for the latter, their albums are dedicated in particular to the work of J.S. Bach, receiving the most important awards from critics.

Her own baroque music projects were recorded with Dirk Boerner, such as the sonatas of Johannes Mattheson or those of Johan Sebastian Bach, which were extremely well received by the baroque press. She formed I LUDI MUSICI with Dirk and Sarah van Cornewal, to revisit 18th century chamber music around the traverse flute. As a soloist, she has performed in the framework of the most prestigious festivals such as Salzburg, Innsbruck, Ambronay, Saint Denis, Prague and Varsovie – as well as some of the most beautiful concert halls in Europe among those the Theatre de La Ville, Theatre des Abbesses, Musikverein Wien, Theatre Châtelet, Gulbenkian, Brucknerhaus Linz and beyond in China, Japan, Argentina, Uruguay, Columbia and Brazil...

Her musical curiosity has led to her exploring other horizons, within traditional music. She founded her own ensemble from which her consequent albums were born, reviving the Latin-American repertoire affirming her sensuality, innovation and creativity as both performer and musician. She regularly collaborates with the Brodsky Quartet, Tunde Jegede and l’Alter Quintet in order to integrate the inventiveness of contemporary music and the richness of the south-Amerindian folklores. She is constantly searching for the next musical fusion, a musician never made uncomfortable by borders in order to explore the music, the treasures and the limits, like a great explorer. Diana Baroni is regularly invited by the Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique de Rouen, the Association Flautistica in Madrid, Dartington International Summer School and l’Académie International de Sablé sur Sarthe.

Together with her friend graphic designer Gwendoline Krzepisz, she created in 2013 the record label PAPILIO COLLECTION, around the heritage of contemporary world music. Like a guide, the collection wishes to share the sonic universe of its artists, migrants or explorers, who carry within them the borders of a new musical continent, in perpetual movement and transformation.
