Jonathan Faralli studied percussion and composition with Renzo Stefani and Gaetano Giani-Luporini at the Luigi Cherubini State Conservatory in Florence, where he graduated with the highest honors. Alongside these studies, he also took lessons from David Lee Searcy and Christoph Caskel, who teaches at the Cologne Hochschule and is the percussionist preferred by Karlheinz Stockhausen for the first performances of his works. Faralli then went on to perfect his training at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam with Peter Prommel (marimbaphone), Jan Pustjens (drums) and Jean Labordius (timpani); he later also studied under Christian Hamouy and Gabriel Bouchet at the school of "Les Percussions de Strasbourg". Faralli performs both as a soloist and in chamber ensembles, and has given many world premieres of percussion works by contemporary composers. He regularly works with "Les Percussions de Strasbourg", "Contempoartensemble", "European Music Project", "Modern Times Duo" and "Moscow Virtuosi". He has performed under the most eminent conductors and in the most prestigious international concert halls and theaters. Faralli also works with the "Tempo Reale" institute for music research (computer science and computer music) which is headed by Luciano Berio.
