Art can be a relief or a guide through uncertain times.

And I can’t do it without you. 



Luca Piovesan is an Italian accordionist based in Bruxelles. 

He focuses on the extreme possibilities of accordion in contemporary music experimenting in cooperation with composers and artists. 

He regularly performs in duo with Promenade Sauvage, he collaborates with Ictus Ensemble, he teaches accordion at the Conservatorio di Cosenza, and he is a researcher at the Conservatory of Bruxelles exploring the boundaries of co-composition for accordion and pedalboards.

He also received degrees in Italian Literature and audio engineering, and leads his BlowOutStudio, working also as a composer for images.

His stakes on this path are his concerts (Konzerthaus Wien, Harvard University, Berklee College of Music, Bayreuther Festspiele, Tokyo Opera City Hall, Teatro La Fenice), discs, lectures and the project “accordion4composers”.

He is a tireless traveler, constantly attracted by the diversity of the wolrld and its inhabitants.
