Biography

Filippo Gragnani (3 September 1768 – 28 July 1820) was an Italian guitarist and composer.

Gragnani was born in Livorno, the son of Antonio Gragnani. Coming from a family of notable luthiers and musicians[1], he studied music in his home town with Giulio Maria Lucchesi, first studying the violin then later devoting himself to the guitar, becoming known as a virtuoso performer.

Gragnani first published works for guitar and chamber music in Milan around the beginning of the 19th century with the publishers Ricordi and Monzino. During these times he travelled to Germany and then eventually settling in Paris by 1810. There he befriended and became a pupil of Ferdinando Carulli[2], to whom he dedicated three of his guitar duets[3] and who in turn also dedicated some duets to Gragnani.[4]
Little is known about Gragnani after 1812 although the “Registro dei Morti” (Register of Deaths) of the Church of St. Martino di Salviano in Livorno indicates he died on 28 July 1820.[4]
