Never miss another 'Luca Luciano' show
Clarinet Solo Project: Luca Luciano
Part of a UK tour of churches and cathedrals to promote his new albums, Luca Luciano's 'Clarinet Solo Project' is informed by his research on extended techniques and new music for solo clarinet that he has often presented during premieres held in the UK or overseas.
The core of the performance is made of his Sequenza (premiered at the Bristol Cathedral in 2009) and other compositions from the critically acclaimed album 'Partenope', plus music by Berio, Messiaen, Stravinsky and re-arrangements of famous themes from Puccini and Vivaldi.
During the performance the clarinet is pushed to the edge using a wide range of styles and expressions on music both written and 'composed in real time'.
Luciano tries in this remarkable journey to embrace all styles of music he loves in an imaginative tour around the world from Western European music to Afro-American or folkloric music of the Southern Italy, from contemporary classical music with chromatic and angular-shaped lines to heartfelt melodies.
