started to study the violin with his mother Montserrat Cervera and he obtained his diploma under Mila Costisella’s tutoring at the Conservatory of S. Cecilia in Rome in 1988, with full marks and a note of distinction. He then specialised in violin with Pavel Vernikov, Zinaida Gilels and Eugenia Chugajeva in Portogruaro and in Wien, in a quartet with Piero Farulli, Raphael Hillier and Sadao Harada. Ever since he has been committed to an intense concert activity, that brought him to playing for important Institutions such as S. Cecilia Academy and IUC in Rome, Philharmonic of St. Petersburg, Milanomusica, La Fenice Theatre, S. Carlo Theatre and Scarlatti Association Scarlatti in Naples, and to chamber cooperation activities with renowned musicians such as Myung-Wung Chung, Alexander Lonquich, Michele Campanella, David Geringas, Mario Brunello, Boris Petruschansky, Antony Pay and Veronica Hagen.

Acting as the first solo violinist of S. Cecilia National Academy Orchestra from 1995 to 2006, Marco has played with eminent directors (Chung, Maazel, Pretre, Sawallisch, Temirkanov, Tate, Dutoit, Fruhbeck de Burgos), has performed numerous tours in Europe, Japan, Korea and China, has interpreted the most famous “solo” by Strauss, Bach, Beethoven, Tschaikowsky and Rimsky-Korsakov and has recorded music for Deutsche Gramophone, Musicom and EMI. With the same role he has cooperated with the Scala Orchestra in Milan, the Toscanini Symphonica, the Chamber Orchestra in Lausanne and the Symphonic Orchestra in Rome. On Dmitri Sitkovetsky’s invitation, he has cooperated as a second violin with the New European Strings, a selected group gathering some of the best first parts in Europe.

A fervent chamber musician, in 1995 he founded the Rome Quartet, which immediately won a prize at the XV International Competition in Trapani; he performs intense concert activity in Italy, Spain, Holland, Norway, Turkey, Egypt, the Far East and mainly in Germany, where, as a regular guest since 1999, he has always been welcomed with enthusiasm by audience and critics. Particularly appreciated by both the Italian and German critics is the CD recorded by Bottega Discantica, with the quintets for clarinets and strings by Mozart and Brahms; the Reger and Marteau’s quintets have been most recently recorded (Naxos), as well as the complete piece for quartets by Verdi and Puccini (Bottega Discantica). The Quartet has been hosted at various Festivals: Spoleto, Orlando (Holland), Neuschwanstein (Germany). Marco Fiorini has played with the Prometeo Quartet in England, Switzerland, Germany, Spain and Armenia, as well as the Festivals of Ravenna and Ravello, in Italy. He has also recorded music for RAI, Radio Nacional de Espana, Catalunya Radio, Ermitage, Frequenz and Musikstrasse, RadioSvizzeraItaliana, Bayerischer Rundfunk.

Amongst his solo commitments it is worth noticing his presence at the Festival Casals in Spain and his recent interpretations of the Beethoven concert at the Music Park in Rome, and of the Gregorian Concert by Respighi with the Symphonic Orchestra in Rome. Marco holds violin specialisation courses and master classes, chamber music and orchestra courses, also in the capacity of director, both in Italy and abroad (Spain, Singapore), and he takes care of the instrument technique section of the specialised periodical “Archi Magazine”.
