I have been working with Luca since 2023 and have found him to be extremely professional, inspiring and creative. We have worked together delivering workshops to members of the local public. I like the way Luca is able to work to a brief but also allows space for improvisation and responding to the audience. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and demonstrates tenacity, integrity and knowledge of his art at a very high level. I feel very honored to be able to work in partnership him and we are planning more projects in 2024.

Luca recently played his cello at a family funeral during the church service. We were all totally moved by his sympathetic and superb rendition of Ave Maria and other relevant pieces of music. He judged the occasion perfectly and played with such compassion and sensitivity. Thank you Luca for your valuable musical contribution to such an important event for the family.
