Marco Fusi is a violinist/violist, researcher and a passionate advocate for the music of our time. His activity as a performer focuses heavily on solo works exploring 'radical' aesthetics (John Cage, Giacinto Scelsi, Salvatore Sciarrino, Pierluigi Billone), requiring constant research in sound parameters, stylistic context and the composer/performer relationship, resulting in a constant analytical approach that establishes a sound performance practice investigation.
More recently, through investigations in the archives of the Fondazione Isabella Scelsi (Rome), the finding of the never-performed nor published Divertimento N. 1 for violin and piano by Giacinto Scelsi led to a Visiting Researcher residency at the Orpheus Institute in Ghent. He conducted research into all influences surrounding the work and all known aspects of Scelsi’s compositional process. Marco is continuing a doctoral research on the establishment of an informed performance practice of the works for solo violin by Giacinto Scelsi.
Marco Fusi lectures and workshops at Columbia University, University of California - Berkeley, Basel Musikhochschule, New York University, Boston University, Royal Danish Academy of Music - Copenhagen, Cité de la Musique et de la Danse - Strasbourg, University of Chicago. He teaches Contemporary Chamber Music at the Milano conservatory “G. Verdi”.
