Fabio Di Càsola

The sound of Fabio Di Càsola's clarinet is remarkably flexible and powerfully evocative. Lugano-born Fabio Di Càsola is one of the world's leading clarinettists. After winning the Geneva Competition in 1990, he was awarded the "Prix Suisse" for contemporary music and has since performed on the stages of the most prestigious international music venues. Fabio Di Càsola's programme for LuganoMusica will exalt his virtuoso qualities as well as appreciate the sweetness and lyricism to be found in Schumann, Poulenc and Gade's works.
