Luka Faulisi



With ‘a million dollar sound’ (Pinchas Zukerman), twenty year-old Luka Faulisi is one of the most promising violinists of his generation. Having started to play the violin at the age of three, Luka was a student of Boris Belkin at the Conservatorium Maastricht in the Netherlands and is currently a student of Professor Pavel Berman at the Academy Lorenzo Perosi in Biella, Italy.

Over the years, through personal mentoring, several distinguished artists have influenced Luka’s musical formation. Pavel Berman describes him as an ‘an incredibly gifted virtuoso violinist’. Flautist Emmanuel Pahud praises Luka as as ‘an extremely talented young man with great instrumental abilities and a strong musical expression’ and according to Jean-Jacques Kantorow Luka possesses ‘incredible facilities’.

Recent debuts include performances with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse with Wilson Ng at the Halle aux Grains; Menuhin Academy Camerata Soloists at the KKL Luzern Konzertsaal; Radio Television Serbia Symphony Orchestra at the Kolarac Hall in Belgrade; Szczecin Philharmonic under the baton of Case Scaglione.

Upcoming concerts include Luka’s Italian debut with the Orchestra Filarmonica di Torino conducted by Giampaolo Pretto and the Macau Orchestra in April 2023 under the baton of conductor Tung-Chieh Chuang.

Shortly forthcoming is Luka’s recital in Paris at the Salle Colonne which will feature pieces from his album “Aria” and his debut at the 30th anniversary of the “Festival du Salon de Provence” this summer.

Luka’s debut album “Aria” has been released by Sony Classical International on March 3, 2023.


“Luka Faulisi’s interpretation of Saint-Saen’s Third Violin Concerto, Op. 61 was an original one. This is a great achievement in the case of such popular work. It proves the intellectual potential of a young musician. Faulisi rids the piece of histrionic pretentiousness. He offers a focused, nuanced reading. Bravo for imagination!”

” …’a million dollar sound’ – this is how Pinchas Zukerman characterizes the timbre of the violin of Luka Faulisi, whose early twenties in no way diminishes the expression of an already strong and singular personality.”
