Gustavo Núñez

Gustavo Núñez is considered one of the leading bassoonists of his generation. He has been the Principal Bassoon at the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam for over 20 years and holds a professorship at the Robert-Schumann-Hochschule in Dusseldorf and the Amsterdam University of Arts. Núñez was born in Montevideo, Uruguay where he received his first lessons from his father and gained his first orchestral experience in the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra. Aged 16, a grant enabled him to study in London and later-on with Klaus Thunemann. While still studying, his exceptional talent was recognized by winning the Prix Suisse at the Geneva International Music Competition and first prize at the Carl Maria von Weber Competition in Munich, whereafter he was appointed Principal Bassoon with the Bamberg Symphony in 1989.
