The world of music mourns Maestro Angelo Gilardino, who died at the age of 80 in the hospital this morning

by admin

The world of culture and music is in mourning for the death of Angelo Gilardino. The guitarist and composer had turned 80 in November and died in the early hours of this morning at the Sant’Andrea hospital, where he had been hospitalized for a few days. A career, that of the Vercelli maestro, which began in 1958 which led him to become known and appreciated all over the world, both at the concert level (career ended in 1981) and above all in teaching and composition, in which he was the protagonist until the end.

It is no coincidence that in Rome in December Gilardino was ideally celebrated for his 80th birthday on an evening in which a concert composed by Gilardino was performed during the lockdown. The same was played on December 16 in Asigliano on the occasion of the birthday party in which, among other things, Gilardino had received honorary citizenship.

The president of the Region Alberto Cirio also participated in that ceremony. It was the last public appearance of the master from Vercelli, in a life full of rewards and satisfactions. He was considered the heir of Segovia (he was also director of the foundation named after the famous Spanish guitarist) and passed on his gift to many of his students. Angelo Gilardino leaves his son Alessandro and his brother Sergio, an expert linguist and teacher for years in Canada. The funeral has not yet been set.
