Luca Luciano is a noted Italian clarinettist and composer who now makes his home in London, having developed an enviable reputation as an instrumental virtuoso around the UK and overseas via recordings and concert hall appearances.

Internationally recognised for his ground breaking 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. He has presented new works (either his own compositions or music especially written or arranged for him) and recently 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. 

Admission is free, but we welcome your contribution towards our expenses. If you are a UK tax payer please consider using Gift Aid to increase the value of your donation by a quarter.
