Internationally recognized for his groundbreaking contributions to contemporary clarinet music, praised by Musical Opinion (UK’s oldest classical music magazine) for his “constantly beautiful tone”, he starts his career at a very young age and has since “established himself as the friendly face of contemporary clarinet”, according to the Clarinet & Saxophone Magazine.
His work has been described as “romantic, soulful and technically superb” and, with a repertoire that embraces more than two centuries of Western music, Luca is considered one of the most versatile musicians of his generation. Luciano has presented new works (either his compositions or music especially written/arranged for him) and rarely played music at some of the most established venues of the UK and overseas. He is mainly active as a solo artist presenting original projects via concerts/recitals and his experience includes TV and radio performances, master-classes and lecture-recitals, five solo albums, orchestra and chamber music.
Duo Lucatelle-Bartoloni - Piano and Guitar
The Duo Lucatelle-Bartoloni, featuring pianist Daniela Lucatelle and guitarist Fábio Bartoloni, aims at broadening the repertoire for this unusual ensemble via recordings and live performances. Thanks to funds provided by the Secretary of Culture of the State of São Paulo, they recorded the CD “Sonatas and Fantasias” that featured exclusively original works for piano and guitar duo. The CD was officially launched during a concert at SESC Vila Mariana in São Paulo in July of 2014, and this performance was chosen one of the best concerts of 2014 by the Folha de São Paulo newspaper. In 2016 they toured Europe, with concerts at Festival Guitares en Picardie in France, St. Mary at Finchley Church in London, and Mannheim Musikschule in Germany.
