I had the great privilege of knowing Luciano Sgrizzi and counted him a long-time friend.

A man of modesty, he had been a child prodigy on the piano, studied organ before turning to the instrument of his predilection, the harpsichord. He possessed an encyclopedic mind with a particular passion for literature and geography. He travelled the world on concert tours from a young age and took a special interest in trains and train timetables.

He was, above all, a musician par excellence, whose musical sensitivity was as remarkable as his talent, and this was manifested in his multifaceted musicianship: from continuo playing, orchestral reduction, accompanying other instruments, even composing.

Luciano Sgrizzi was a complete musician, a man of culture and an exceptional friend.
