Welcome to my website!


I am an italian harpsichord and fortepiano player that lives in Düsseldorf with his wife Yukie and his son Naoki. I studied at the conservatory of music of my hometown Como and in Essen at the Folkwang Hochschule. I play regularly with Les Musiciens du Prince and Cecilia Bartoli and I have collaborated with orchestras such as Concerto Köln, Les Talens Lyriques, Balthasar Neumann Ensemble, Gürzenich Orchester, Philharmonisches Staatsorchesters Hamburg, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Ensemble Resonanz….. I recorded more than 15 Cds for the labels Sony-Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, Deutsche Grammophon, Capriccio, Onyx, Hyperion, Erato, Hänssler Classics, Pan Classics, TYXart and Brilliant Classics.

I appeared in some of the most important concert halls (Elbphilharmonie, Berliner Philharmonie, Opéra Garnier-Paris, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Musikverein Wien, Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall, Lincoln Center New York, KKL Luzern, Palau de la Música Catalana……). I am now currently lecturer at the the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen. I hope you enjoy getting to know me better in this website and please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information. Thank you! Best wishes, Luca
