Giuliano Carmignola




Gramophone magazine described him as ‘A prince among baroque violinists’. His interpretations are characterized by great passion and an introspective approach full of fantasy and freedom.


A native of Treviso, he studied the violin with his father then with Luigi Ferro, Nathan Milstein and Franco Gulli at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena.


He began his career as a soloist under the baton of conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Eliahu Inbal, Peter Maag and Giuseppe Sinopoli, then collaborated with many prestigious conductors and instrumental ensembles on both ancient instruments and modern orchestras in Europe and around the world.


From then, he regularly perform with Benedetti Michelangeli, Enrico Gatti, Andrea Marcon, Christopher Hogwood, Trevor Pinnock, Ivor Bolton, Roger Norrington, Richard Egarr, Giovanni Antonini, Ottavio Dantone, Franz Brüggen, Tom Koopman and the major European baroque and classical orchestras.


He devotes himself to the baroque and classical repertoires and is one of the most important interpreters of the music of Vivaldi, a composer to whom he has devoted several recordings which are references today.


Most of his very numerous discographic productions are made for Sony Classical and Deutsche Grammophon and many of his recordings have won awards.


His last recordings :

  • Sonates eandPartitas BWV 1001-1006 de J.S. Bach (DG-2018)
