Born in Bologna in 1960, Paolo Pollastri took his diploma in 1977 with the highest marks possible under the direction of Sidney Gallesi. He then specialised at the Accademia Chigiana with Lothar Faber (Diploma of Honour 1977) and at the Conservatory of Brussels with Paul Dombrecht (First Prize in modern and Baroque oboe 1982). Paolo Pollastri has won a large number of national and international competitions, and has been the first oboe of numerous orchestras (the Italian Youth Orchestra, the Teatro Comunale of Genoa; the RAI Orchestra of Rome; the ORT - the Orchestra of Tuscany)

and performs as a soloist for a large number of orchestral groups: the 'Soloisti Veneti', the 'Accademia Bizantina', the 'Virtuosi Italiani', the 'Symphonia Perusina', the 'Filarmonici di Verona'. With these groups he has taken part in the festivals of Salzburg, Montreaux, Zagabria and Belgrade, Martigny and Vevey, Paris, Toulouse, Stoccard, Edinburgh, Sidney, Melbourne and Canberra, and Tel Aviv. He has recorded for the RAI, the BBC, Australian Television, Israeli Television, and Dutch Television. During the summer of 1990, at the international meeting of the IDRS, he was invited to give three concerts and hold three conferences at the Louisiana State University. He also dedicates himself to the Baroque oboe, and with this instrument he has played under the direction of Frans Brüggen, Alan Stanley Curtis, Thomas Haselblock, Enrico Gatti, and Fabio Biondi. He has also played as a soloist with Christopher Hogwood, Roger Norrington, Simon Preston, Nigel Rogers, Robert Kohnen, Joshua Rifkin, Sergio Bartolo, Kenneth Gilbert, and Rinaldo Alessandrini. He has recorded for Erato, Emi France, Denon, Tactus, Fonč, Materiali Sonori, Musica Immagine, Eurospa Musica, Arts, and Harmoni Mundi. His presence is to be found in a large number of recordings of the monographic series 'From the Baroque to the Present' by P&P Classica. His recording of the concertos for oboe and violin by Vivaldi won for him in 1997 the nomination for a Grammy award, as did his recording in 2000 of the 'Concerto Grossi' of Corelli in a new recording with wind instruments with the Ensemble Modo Antiquo.
