A pupil of Paolo Borciani, first violin of the Quartetto Italiano, Franco Gulli and Norbert Brainin, Fulvio Luciani is the founder and first violin of the Quartetto Borciani. In many ways a loner, always unconventional in his approach to his music-making, he is the first ever to have performed Sivoriʼs Twelve Caprice-Studies; he has also recorded the complete works of Schumann for violin and piano, and has organised and performed a series of concerts for solo violin spanning over seven centuries. He has played Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas with Schumann’s piano accompaniment, the violin and piano repertoire of Dushkin and Stravinsky, and Liszt’s works for violin, together with more familiar repertoire. He has worked with Siegfried Palm, Hatto Beyerle, Bruno Canino, Antonio Ballista, Riccardo Zadra, Paolo Bordoni, Enrico Dindo and Massimiliano Motterle, and has appeared at famous venues, including the Teatro alla Scala. His performances have been recorded by Sky Classica, which has dedicated documentaries to him. He is an enthusiastic teacher and enjoys writing. Ricordi have published his edition of Sivoriʼs Twelve Caprice- Studies. He has won the ʻAntonio Vivaldiʼ International Record Award presented by the Venice-based Fondazione Cini.
