Contemporary clarinet recital presenting 20th and 21st century music also informed by Luciano’s research on extended techniques, improvisation and new music for clarinet solo. Along with the World Premiere of a homage piece to Giacomo Puccini and his famous opera Tosca, the programme features original compositions written and arranged by Luciano, published on his last three releases, and re-arrangements of jazz classics by Kurt Weill and Thelonious Monk. Luca’s passion for South America (where he has been touring regularly for the past years) is evident on his arrangements of classics by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astor Piazzolla and Villa-Lobos. The performance also showcases the full potential of the clarinet and though Luciano’s exceptional virtuoso skills are clearly evident, the music has always a distinctive melodic sense inspired by theWestern European tradition and his Neapolitan heritage. The programme also features one of Luca’s miniatures recently premiered at St Martin in the Fields in London for their New Music Series. Described by the BBC Radio as “one of Europe’s leading exponent of jazz clarinet”, Luca Luciano's repertoire also embraces Brahms, Stravinsky, Poulenc, Berio. He has held many master-classes, and has performed at the South Bank Centre (recording live for BBC Radio at the Royal Festival Hall), Edinburgh Festival, Cambridge University.
