BORCIANI QUARTET

Borciani Quartet

Fulvio Luciani, violin • Elena Ponzoni, violin • Roberto Tarenzi, viola • Claudia Ravetto, cello

In 1984 Paolo Borciani, first violin of the Quartetto Italiano, gave his consent to the formation by a group of his students of a string quartet bearing his name. Their gesture was intended to mark their association with Borciani’s exemplary school of instrumental and musical training, and their desire to perpetuate the tradition established by the legendary quartet he founded. Since then the Quartetto Borciani has performed in major venues throughout Italy, including the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Teatro San Carlo of Naples and the Teatro Regio of Turin, and elsewhere in Europe at the Purcell Room in London and for the bicentennial celebrations at the Mozarteum Großer Saal of Salzburg, as well as at concerts in Germany, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, and Luxemburg. The acclaimed appearance of the quartet in 1991 at the Festival dei Due Mondi of Spoleto brought them back for another performance the following year. They also appeared in the Wexford Festival of Ireland in 1996, and in 1998 they made their American début at the San Luis Obispo Mozart Festival, to a standing ovation. More recently they accepted a rare invitation from Iran to performers from the western world, appearing in concert there in Tehran in 2000. The Quartetto Borciani has also been privileged to perform with such distinguished artists as the cellist Siegfried Palm, violists Hatto Beyerle (founder of the Alban Berg Quartet) and Danilo Rossi, and the pianists Bruno Canino, Antonio Ballista, and Paolo Bordoni. Radio and television appearances range from recorded stage performances, broadcast by Italian Radio and Television (RAI) throughout Europe via satellite, to a television special by the Italian cable station Telepiù D+ Classica. The Quartetto Borciani has an exceptionally wide repertoire, ranging from transcriptions of music of the Renaissance to the contemporary, with works specially written for the quartet, and encompassing the complete cycle of Beethoven quartets, including those without opus number.
