Born in Naples, the violinist Fabrizio von Arx started studying violin at the age of seven under the tuition of M° Leone. Immediately, he manifested a great artistic talent which was furthermore revealed when he won, at the age of ten, the Vittorio Veneto competition.
He obtained his diploma at the "San Pietro a Majella" Conservatory in Naples, and then worked to perfection his technique through further studies abroad. He won prestigious distinctions, such as his virtuosity diploma (classified first) in Geneva under the guidance of Corrado Romano, as well as the "Performer" award in the U.S.A., where he was taught by Franco Gulli and Nelli Skolnikova at the School of Music (University of Indiana in Bloomington). He also worked under the guidance of M° Ruggiero Ricci in Berlin, and of M° Salvatore Accardo in Cremona.
His debut at the age of 16 with the Naples' RAI orchestra has sent him into intense activity at national and international level. Since then, he is a regular guest at the principal international seasons, such as the "Serate Musicali" in Milan, the Scarlatti Association of Naples, the Autumn Festival in Como, the Tonhalle of Zurich, La Cité de la Musique of Paris, the Ravenna Festival, the Concerts Radio Rai at the Quirinale in Rome, the Festival de Bellerive and the Grands Interprètes of Neuchâtel, in the WienerSaal in Salzburg, in the Philharmonie of Berlin.
He performed as a soloist for prestigious orchestras, as the Prague Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestra of Padova and Veneto, the Moscow Solists, the Japan Royal Chamber Orchestra, the Zürich Symphony Orchestra, the Wiener kammerorchester and the Berliner Symphoniker. He has been directed by famous artists, notably by Franco Petracchi, Alexander Vedernikov, Yuri Bashmet,Peter Maag and Lior Shambadal. He also toured the United-States, France, Germany, and Belgium. In 2005, he was the "Prima" of a triumphant tour in China, next to the M° Roberto Prosseda.
His first CD, the complete works for violin and piano by Sergej Prokofiev received the highest praise from specialised critics.
We also point out his now consolidated, long-lasting collaboration with Bruno Canino, with whom he has just recorded the Schumann sonatas under the label Dynamic. These sonatas have been rewarded by the prestigious five stars of the magazine "Musica". The CD has been presented by the duo through concerts at the "Kammermusiksaal"of thr Philarmonie of Berlin, at the "Serate Musicali" in Milan, and at the Wigmore Hall of London.
