Album Description

Luciano’s most successful project is the “Clarinet Solo Project” and most of the material presented on this release is regularly performed by Luciano across Europe and in South America, especially pieces by Berio, Stravinsky, Messiaen and Cage. His research focuses on extended techniques and new music for solo clarinet, but also rarely performed compositions such as that of the Brazilian composers featured on this album (Claudio Santoro, Ronaldo Miranda, Osvlado Lacerda) that he has also spread via educational events and articles for peer-reviewed publications. The research interest on sound effects and unconventional sound production is more evident on the music of Berio, Santoro, Miranda and Gershwin. In particular, the use of the instrument endorsed by Luciano, the so-called “Full Boem System” clarinet (with extra keys and rings, that is seldom played nowadays), is the instrument initially intended for Berio’s Sequenza (absolutely necessary for some of the effects the composer wanted) and for Santoro’s Fantasia. Luciano held for several years the only existing position of jazz clarinet lecturer in the UK at the time, also teaching classical and contemporary music and his “encore” (Gershwin’s Summertime) reflects his interest in improvised music as much as the piece by Miranda shows his extended experience with Brazilian music (a country that he has toured regularly over the years) trying to convey their sense of rhythm and melody.
