Critically acclaimed as a “formidable clarinetist, with a sumptuous tone and dazzling virtuosity”, Tommaso Lonquich is a soloist in the MidtVest Ensemble, an innovative chamber group based in Denmark. He is also a member of the prestigious Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York, with which he performs in the United States and on tour.
He is regularly invited to the most important halls in the world, collaborating with Christian Tetzlaff, Carolin Widmann, Pekka Kuusisto, Enrico Bronzi, Umberto Clerici, Sergio Azzolini, Danusha Waskiewicz and the Quartets Noûs, Zaïde, Mirus and Vertavo.
In Denmark he is the founder and artistic co-director of the Schackenborg Musikfest, a summer festival that takes place in the homonymous royal castle. He is also co-artistic director of KantorAtelier, a cultural association. The continuous research on improvisation and interaction with other arts has led him to collaborate with Peppe Servillo, Dan Colen, Odin Teater and others.
He has conducted masterclasses at the Juilliard School, the Manhattan School of Music and the University of New York. He is the protagonist of numerous radio broadcasts and a dozen recordings.
He plays the role of first clarinet with the Haydn Philharmonie, the Leonore Orchestra and the Mantua Chamber Orchestra, collaborating with conductors such as Zubin Mehta, Daniele Giorgi, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Fabio Luisi, Enrico Onofri and Nicolas Altstaedt.
Parallel to his artistic career, he trained as a psychoanalyst with a Lacanian orientation in Ljubljana and Madrid.
