Ensemble Zefiro was founded in 1989 by oboists Alfredo Bernardini and Paolo Grazzi together with bassoonist Alberto Grazzi and consists of talented musicians drawn from leading Baroque orchestras. Zefiro regularly appears to great acclaim at major European, Asian and South American festivals.
“Italian Baroque wind ensemble Zefiro play beautifully and programme thoughtfully...The versatile Gemma Bertagnolli sings stylishly in three languages...[her] palpitations in the first vocal phrase are emotive, and her embellishments during "Ho tanti affetti" are beguiling.”

“Ensemble Zefiro highlights the oboe. Their playing is delightfully alert in allegros, raptly expressive in the slow movements. The largo of the G minor trio is a highlight. Bertagnolli enchants in Mi palpita il cor”
