Giorgio Fava Violin

Giorgio Fava grew up as violinist in his town, Treviso, with Antonio and Giuliano Carmignola, completing then his studies with M° Corrado Romano in Geneve. In the same Swiss city, at Centre de Musique Ançienne, he studied with Chiara Banchini, getting in 1985 the diploma cum laude in barock violin.

Since 1983 he is first violin of Sonatori de la Gioiosa marca, the internationally known ensemble, who nowadays keeps a role of authority in the interpretation of Venetian music of XVII and XVIII century. He recorded for the principal recording companies (Erato, Warner Classics, Decca, Divox, Opus 111, Arcana, RCA e DHM/Sony etc.) and European radios.

Since the beginning of his carreer, he joins the concertistic and research activity, also the didactic one: he taught since 1981 at Conservatorium of Venice and Castelfranco Veneto; he has been Professor of barock violin at Hochschule für Musik in Trossingen (Germany) since 1994 to 1997; since 2004 he is regular holder of the advanced course of barock/classic violin at Conservatorium A. Steffani in Castelfranco Veneto. In 2001, during the celebrations of Premio Internazionale del Disco Antonio Vivaldi, instituted by Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice, he got the special prize of jury.
