For 7 years, he participated in the concerts of the Bordeaux-Aquitaine Orchestra as a pianist and as a percussionist. He founded all of the Young Soloists of Aquitaine and the percussion group: PERCUSSIS. Soloist at the PERCUSSIONS OF STRASBOURG from 1983 to 1996, he became Music Director. Passionate about the creation and work of today’s composers, he created the TETRA quartet (2 pianos, 2 percussions) and simultaneously performed a duet with accordionist P. CONTET. Among his solo performances, he collaborates with the Ensemble Instrumental et Vocal MUSICATREIZE, conducted by R. HAYRABEDIAN since 1983. His discography is currently composed of 30 tracks from very different backgrounds, because Christian HAMOUY is in love with all music. Very attracted by pedagogy, he obtained the Certificate of Aptitude and teaches PERCUSTRA pedagogy in France and abroad. He taught for 9 years alongside F.

He 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.
