I enjoy playing the Reserve Classic reeds. Besides the constancy in performance and of quality within a box, they sound even over the whole extension of the instrument with an excellent response and a full, warm sound.

A D'Addario Woodwinds player since 2011.

“Masterful Clarinet! Luca Luciano is a noted Italian clarinettist and composer who now makes his home in London, having developed an enviable reputation as an instrumental virtuoso around the UK and overseas via recordings and concert hall appearances” (The Musician). Internationally recognized for his groundbreaking contributions to contemporary clarinet music, he starts his career at the young age of twelve performing at one of the most established halls of his home town Naples and appears on television nationwide live aged twenty-one. Introduced as “the New Voice of the Clarinet” on the front page of De Klarinet Magazine, Luciano receives a master’s degree from the Conservatoire of Salerno (Italy), is awarded the Fellow status at the Higher Education Academy (UK) and, according to the Clarinet & Saxophone Society of Great Britain, has since “established himself as the friendly face of contemporary clarinet”. Described by the BBC Radio as “one of Europe’s leading exponent of jazz clarinet”, Luciano’s repertoire also embraces Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Berio, Messiaen, Schumann, Brahms, including recordings of music by Stravinsky and Poulenc. Former clarinet professor at the Leeds College of Music (UK), Luciano’s areas of research include extended techniques and new compositions for solo clarinet also presented during his master-classes and lecture-recitals (in the UK, Europe and South America) and regularly premiered at St Martin in the Fields in London and abroad. Over the last ten years, Luca has found himself increasingly in demand as a soloist and has pursued a career as a solo artist touring extensively the UK and overseas and focusing primarily on his own music performing at venues as diverse as: the South Bank Centre, Barber Institute of Fine Arts, Edinburgh Festival, Cambridge University, Centro Cultural Sao Paulo among others. Aside from his renowned solo clarinet work, Luca has appeared on TV programs nationwide (SKY Brazil, RAI Television Italy, RTE Ireland), collaborated with orchestras (Italy, Republic of Ireland, Brazil) and with chamber music ensembles (also recording live for BBC Radio 3 at the Royal Festival Hall). As a recording artist, Luciano’s solo albums have received much critical acclaim in three continents gaining him appearances on the front page of music magazines. He has been interviewed by the press, on TV and on radio with broadcasts nationwide including the BBC Radio and whole radio programs in the US on contemporary music dedicated to his work. In particular, his last two releases, featuring music informed by his research, have been praised by some of the major publications on clarinet such as The Clarinet Journal (USA/worldwide), Clarinet & Saxophone Magazine (UK), Rohrblatt (Germany), De Klarinet (The Netherlands/Belgium).
