Luciano Tarantino is Italian cellist born in 1977, began studying cello at a young age and was taught by renowned masters such as Ormezowski, Geringas, Mork, Monighetti, and Rostropovich. By the age of 20, he had become the first cellist for several Italian orchestras, performing under conductors such as Mazeel, Sinopoli, Tate, Gergiev, Pretre, Noseda, Petrenko, and De Burgos. However, he soon left this role to focus on solo and chamber music, leading him to perform at prestigious chamber music festivals in cities such as Paris, Madrid, Tokyo, Rome, Bergamo, Moscow, Vilnius, Stockholm, Istanbul, Beijing, Seoul, Strasbourg, Lugano, Johannesburg, Beirut, and more. Tarantino has recorded various CDs for labels such as DaVinci, Brilliant, Farelive, Fedoramusic, KzMusik, and Stradivarius, and was the only Italian to receive an award from the Violoncello Foundation of New York. Currently, he is the artistic director of Festival Note in Bari and plays the precious Italian cello of Carlo Antonio Testore from 1736.
