Luciano Biondini

Primary Instrument: Accordion

Born: January 1, 1971    

Born in Spoleto in 1971, Luciano Biondini started studying the accordion seriously at age 10. He has been awarded many prizes for classical accordion, e.g. Trophée Mondial de l'Accordéon and Premio Internazionale di Castelfidardo. Since his turning to jazz in 1994 Biondini has played with the likes of Rabih Abou-Khalil, Dave Bargeron, Michel Godard, Battista Lena, Gabriele Mirabassi, Enrico Rava, Tony Scott and many others. A true master of his instrument and a soloist with an overwhelming dramaticism, he always adds something beautiful and original to any context he works in.

His duet partner Javier Girotto was born in 1965 in Argentina (of Italian ancestors) where he studied Argentinian and Italian music in his early years.

LUCIANO BIONDINI ACCORDEON SOLO (I)

Luciano Biondini Besetzung: Luciano Biondini - Akkordeon ”Jetzt hat die Selbstfindung des Akkordeons einen neuen Höhepunkt erreicht. Was das Köln-Konzert Keith Jarretts für den Soloklaviervortrag im Jazz bedeutete, das könnte diese live Einspielung des Italieners Luciano Biondini für das Solorezital auf dem Akkordeon werden.” Klassik/Musikmagazin Rondo ”Luciano Biondini gehört zu den großen Virtuosen des aktuellen Akkordeon-Geschehens. In seinen Improvisationen nimmt er das Publikum auf rasante Ausflüge mit, verliert sich aber nicht in technischer Oberflächlichkeit...
