Fabio Antonio Falcone is a passionate performer who focuses his attention on Renaissance and early Baroque repertoire. He is especially interested in sixteenth-century Italian keyboard music, as well as vocal and instrumental repertoire of the Baroque period.
He performs as a soloist and continuo player at international venues and festivals with several ensembles among which Ensemble Elyma, Stile Galante, Genève Baroque, Ensemble Lucidarium and Ensemble Odissee Orchestra with which he tours Europe and records CDs for different labels.
Together with mandolin player Anna Schivazappa in 2012 he founded Pizzicar Galante, an ensemble specialized in galant repertoire for mandolin and basso continuo. In 2015 he also founded L’Amorosa Caccia, an ensemble with who he has been exploring instrumental and vocal repertoire from the Renaissance with a special focus on Italian frottolas and madrigals.
Besides his activity as a concert performer, he devotes himself to research in music didactics, in particular to the reconstruction of teaching practices from the analysis of historical sources. He is currently a member of the research group in didactics of the arts (DAM) at the University of Geneva.
He studied in the Netherlands with Bob van Asperen, as well as in Italy with Maria Luisa Baldassari and Jesper Bøje Christensen, and in Switzerland with Francis Biggi and Kenneth Weiss.
