Maurizio Grandinetti is tirelessly exploring the possibilities of the acoustic and semiacoustic guitar, and «will fearlessly employ any technique, any instrument, to manifest the necessary sounds», as Elliott Sharp describes Maurizio Grandinetti’s openness to a wide range of tonalities and techniques. His activities are not limited to one genre or formation, but range from solo recitals, chamber and contemporary music to improvisation. Electrically amplified, and accompanying himself on electronic instruments, he breaks through the limitations of the instrument.
Maurizio Grandinetti is a member of the Ensemble Phoenix Basel, and a lecturer at the Conservatorio Di Como in Italy and the Hochschule für Musik in Karlsruhe, Germany. He lives in Basel.
