In 1999, Alexandre was awarded a scholarship from the Vitae Institute to study at the “Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin”, with bassoon legend Klaus Thunemann. In 2002, he was accepted into the Berlin Philharmonic Academy (Karajan Akademie).
In Berlin, he played with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, where he also had the opportunity to work with some of the best musicians and conductors of our days, like Seiji Ozawa, André Previn, Mariss Jansons, Pierre Boulez, and others.
In addition to playing with OSESP, Alexandre teaches at the prestigious “Academia de Música da Osesp” (Osesp Academy of Music), is part of CAMALEON BASSOONS and is part of a jazz group named after himself.
His discography includes “Bachianas Brasileiras N.6” (BIS 2007), “Mágoas de Fagote” (CD BABY,2008), and “Entre Mundos – Alexandre Silvério Quinteto” (Alexandre Silvério, 2015)

“Alexandre is a fantastic teacher and coach with a big heart. I first discovered him after listening to his CD Entre Mundos and I wanted to have more fun and learn about jazz and improvisation. Playing jazz helped me with classical playing. I really benefited from his weekly planner, tips on stretching and self-care as I recovered from a shoulder injury. Despite the distance-Alexandre helped me find a new direction and focus in my playing. I recommend his course to anyone seeking new insights into bassoon playing, you are in good hands!”
