Christchurch Folk Music Club - Masterclass


Luca Ciarla presents a workshop focusing on the study of jazz and improvisation for string players. The experience gained over many years of teaching in American universities, in Hong Kong and at the Saint Louis Music College of Rome, one of the leading jazz schools in Italy, has brought him to develop an approach which allows classically trained string players to jump into the fascinating world of improvisation. Among violinists and string players in general, the desire of learning how to improvise is spreading up more and more.

Italian born violin wizard Luca Ciarla owns the stage with his fiddle and a few toy instruments. Step by step, with a loop pedal he performs live all the parts, playing the violin like a guitar, a cello or percussion. In this imaginative landscape Luca sings, whistles, plays other little instruments and adds new virtuoso passages; music is continuously evolving into a dazzling solOrkestra! The program features unusual arrangements of traditional Italian folk tunes, music from the Mediterranean area and original compositions. “…a magical acoustic seduction where everybody can find familiar influences…from genuine folk to sophisticated jazz.” Il Fatto Quotidiano (Italy)

A creative and surprising violinist, Luca Ciarla easily transcends the boundaries among genres to trace an innovative musical path, a magical acoustic seduction in perfect balance between written compositions and improvisation, traditional and contemporary sounds. He has successfully performed in jazz, classical and world music festivals and concert series in more than 60 countries around the world; from Montreal Jazz Festival to the Hong Kong Performing Arts Centre, from Celtic Connections in Scotland to the Villa-Lobos Festival in Rio de Janeiro, from Melbourne Jazz Festival to the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Italy. “…one of the most interesting violinists nowadays on the international scene, capable of browsing around different sounds and genres without ever losing his unmistakable style.” la Repubblica
(Italy)
