About Davide De Ascaniis

“Exquisite control” — Baltimore Sun

 Winner of the AGIMUS Prize in Rome, the Szeryng International Violin Competition in Mexico, and the Grand Prix at the LISMA Foundation in New York City, among other numerous awards, Davide has been concertizing extensively. He continues an intense concert activity as violin soloist (160 + concerts per year on the average) beside his mission to attract a younger audience with his shows “from Baroque to Rock” presenting original arrangements and compositions of different genres featuring two unique instruments: a carbon fiber violin and an electric violin, designed and made exclusively for him. In the United States, de Ascaniis made his debut with the Gateway Orchestra in May 2014, prompting a Brooklyn Eagle reviewer to write: “His dazzling finger work, musicality, pizzicato and incredible cadenzas evoked the wizardry of Paganini.”
