Italian violinist, improviser and composer Ludovica Burtone has performed worldwide as both a soloist and chamber musician. Classically trained with a master of arts in violin performance from an Italian Conservatory, Ludovica has worked with several European orchestras for over 9 years, including the Orchestra Mitteleuropa and the Orchestra Teatro Lirico di Trieste, before moving to the United States. In addition to her classical training, Ludovica grew up playing and improvising in different musical contexts and has immersed herself in all aspects of jazz studies completing a diploma in jazz composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Since then, she had the opportunity to perform and work with musicians like Dave Douglas, Kneebody, Susana Baca, Danilo Perez, Joe Lovano, John Patitucci, A. R. Rahman, Arijit Singh, Dream Theater and  Alejandro Sanz. She performed in some of the most renowned stages like Carnegie Hall, Boston Symphony Hall, Boston Opera House, Jordan Hall.

Ludovica has extensive experience in teaching and studio recording in orchestral, chamber music, improvisational, television and film scoring sessions, doubling also on viola. Since moving to NYC, she regularly performs with her ensembles (Ludovica Burtone Sparks, string quartet and rhythm section) for which she writes original music, and her string quartet O Kwarteto, of which she is a founder member and arranger, an ensemble devoted to the performance of Brazilian music not originally written for the instrumentation. As a collaborator, she is a member of the Michael Leonhart Jazz Orchestra, performing every month at the Jazz Standard; she is a member of the spaghetti western band Tredici Bacci; she collaborated with Camila Meza and the Nectar Orchestra, and more recently she worked with Jon Batiste for his week-long residency at the Carlyle Club. As a composer and arranger, she is now working on a book of strings arrangements of Brazilian music.

She is currently teaching privately and in public school with Brooklyn Conservatory, and regularly being an active musician in the New York City scene.
