Born in Treviso, Giuliano Carmignola first studied with his father. Later his teachers were Luigi Ferro and afterwards Nathan Milstein, followed by Franco Gulli at the Accademia Chigiana and Henryk Szeryng at the Geneva Conservatory. He began his career as a soloist under the direction of conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Eliahu Inbal, Peter Maag and Giuseppe Sinopoli, performing in prestigious concert halls. He then collaborated with Umberto Benedetti Michelangeli, Daniele Gatti, Andrea Marcon, Christoph Hogwood, Trevor Pinnok, Franz Bruggen, Paul Mc Creesh, Giovanni Antonini and Ottavio Dantone. Significant was his collaboration with the Virtuosi of Rome during the ‘70s and later with the Sonatori della gioiosa Marca, the Venice Baroque Orchestra, the Mozart Orchestra, the Orchestre des Champs Elysees, the Basel Chamber Orchestra, Il Giardino Armonico, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra and the Academy of Ancient Music. His recording has led him to collaborate with labels like Erato, Divox Antiqua, Sony and Deutsche Grammophon GmbH, with whom currently he has an exclusive contract. His recording releases have won many important awards such as Diapason d'Or and Choc du Monde. Among the most recent recordings, the concertos for two violins by Vivaldi with Viktoria Mullova and the Venice Baroque Orchestra, the complete Mozart concertos with Claudio Abbado and Orchestra Mozart and Haydn violin concertos with the Orchestre des Champs Elysees. The last work ‘Vivaldi con moto’ released in March 2013 of less-often heard concertos for violin by Vivaldi has already met the appreciation of audience and reviews.
He has taught courses at Siena’s Accademia Musicale Chigiana and Lucerne’s Hochschule. He was awarded the title of "Academician of the Royal Philharmonic Academy of Bologna" and "Academician of Santa Cecilia."
