Claudio Brizi studied at the Conservatory in Perugia and Bologna. He performed about two thousand concerts, playing on prestigious instruments, both as solo player and cooperating with worldwide famous fellow musicians and orchestras. He recorded about a hundred CDs, mostly for the Japanese brand Camerata Tokyo, on a wide repertory ranging from Renaissance to Avantgarde. Non-standard keyboard instruments and Musical Chimeras, hybrids with different natures, have always fascinated him. His own collection has real rarities such as, among others, the 1897 Harmonium-Célesta Mustel, the Harmoniumklavier Erbe (Eisenach, ca. 1900), a rare Brooklyn Reed Organ-Piano, a French and a German Pedalpianos, a Debain’s Harmonio and the Pinchi-Baruccheri Claviorgan that he designed himself, the largest instrument in the world of its kind that can be easily transported. World famous academists have dedicated to this instrument many flattering articles, such as the latest by Jean Guillou in the new edition of “Orgue, Souvenir et Avenir”. The result of his recent researches are his performances on his “Galleria Armonica”, an incredible keyboard instrument combining organ, harpsichord, piano and harmonium on one unique “Wondrous Musical machine”.
He does master classes and seminars worldwide and he teaches at the Perugia Conservatory of Music and at Kusatsu Summer Music Academy (Japan).
