Once praised by Pinchas Zukerman for his “million-dollar sound”, 20-year-old Luka Faulisi is one of the most promising violinists of his generation. Having started playing the violin at the age of three, Faulisi was a student of Boris Belkin at the Conservatorium Maastricht in the Netherlands and is currently a student of Pavel Berman at the Academia Lorenzo Perosi in Biella, Italy.
Over the years, through personal mentoring, several distinguished artists have influenced Faulisi’s musical formation. Pavel Berman described him as “an incredibly gifted virtuoso violinist”. Flautist Emmanuel Pahud praised him as “an extremely talented young man with great instrumental abilities and a strong musical expression”, and according to violinist Jean-Jacques Kantorow, he possesses “incredible facilities”.
Faulisi’s recent débuts include performances at the Cité de la Musique in Paris, Kultur- und Kongresszentrum Luzern with the Menuhin Academy Camerata, as well as Kolarac Hall in Belgrade with the Radio Television of Serbia Symphony Orchestra.
Highlights in the 2022/2023 season include a Polish début with the Szczecin Philharmonic under the baton of Case Scaglione, début with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and Italian début with the Orchestra Filarmonica di Torino with Giampaolo Pretto.click to download images
