Dominic Teresi, a native of California, is principal bassoon of the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra and Carmel Bach Festival. He teaches historical bassoons and chamber music at the Juilliard School, and is also on the faculty at the University of Toronto. As a chamber musician he is much in demand on the Baroque, classical and modern bassoon, as well as the dulcian, and he plays regularly with Quicksilver, Juilliard Baroque and Toronto Consort. He has also enjoyed performances with Le Concert d’Astrée, Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, American Bach Soloists, Philharmonia Baroque, Ensemble Caprice, Smithsonian Chamber Players and others. His playing has been described as “stellar” by the New York Times and “dazzling” by the Toronto Star.
Teresi has been invited as a featured artist on CBC Radio, where he performed a nationally broadcast radio concert of bassoon concertos and sonatas. He has appeared as a concerto soloist throughout Europe, North America and Australia. In addition to his work at Juilliard, he teaches at the Tafelmusik Institutes, American Bach Soloists Academy, and Juilliard’s Piccola Accademia di Montisi in Italy. He has been an invited lecturer at the Musikinstrumentenbau Symposium in Saxony-Anhalt.
