Luca Luciano virtuoso clarinettist & composer with pianist Yuki Osedo
“Such a virtuoso musical performance and such joyful uplifting music I just couldn’t resist it.” Tom Robinson, BBC Radio, 2009
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 started 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, Europe and America. 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.
Luca Luciano, together with internationally known pianist Yuki Osedo, will play two of the most beloved classics for clarinet and piano, the Brahms Sonata in F minor, and the Fantasy pieces op 73 by Schumann in the first half of their concert Wednesday, the 26th of June, 7:30 at Wymondham Abbey. In the second half, Luca will explore a more contemporary sound on his instrument, in music by Debussy, Luciano Berio, and Luciano himself.
Comments such as “a virtuoso performance, and such joyful uplifting music I just couldn’t resist it” from BBC presenter Tom Robinson, from Gianluigi Trovesi, in International Clarinettist Feb 2018 “a marvellous CD, Bravissimo Luca!” and from Richard Elliot “wonderful tone throughout…a true virtuoso” follow Luca around the world.
Don’t forget to come to the pre-concert talk at 6.30pm, when Luca will take us through his compositional process, and allow us to enjoy his music with a degree of insight!
We are in for a treat!
