Alberto Bocini was born in Prato (Italy). He’s been Principal Double Bass player for 5 years in the “Orchestra Nazionale dell’Accademia di Santa Cecilia” in Rome and for 15 years dell’ “Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino” in Florence; with the same role he appeared with many other orchestras, such as La Scala di Milano, I Solisti Veneti, the London Symphony Orchestra. 

Founder member of the popular double bass quartet “the Bass Gang”, presenting an extremely heterogeneous repertoire as musical choices, virtuosity and irony. He has taught masterclasses in much of the world: Europe, Usa, Japan, Taiwan, South America. As a soloist he has recorded for Denon, Stradivarius, Velut Luna, NBBrecords.

Since he left the orchestra in 2012 he’s dedicating more in writing for his instrument; there are many of his works for solo double bass like his “6 Ballads”; works for double bass and orchestra: “XUITE-0, modular suite for amplified double bass and orchestra”; “Concerto for Double Bass and Strings”; “Sliding Doors, for violin, double bass, orchestra and cell ringtones played by audience”.

He does not hesitate to push the boundaries of his repertoire ranging over rock music (see the album “The Cryme of Selling Lambs” dedicated to Genesis), soundtracks (see the album “Moving in the Movies”, NBBrecords) or contemporary music (“Braevissimo”, concerto for double bass and strings by Ennio Morricone, for Denon, Japan).

Since 2009 is professor at the HEM – Haute Ecole de Musique de Geneve and at the Stauffer Academy in Cremona since 2024.
