Co-Founder & Vice President
Raniero Tazzi hails from Assisi, Italy, and has received a DMA in Piano Performance from the Perugia Conservatory. In 1995, Raniero established the Studio Art Concert Agency, which has toured leading musicians and orchestras of our time, among them, The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Martha Argerich, Andras Schiff, Maxim Vengerov, Pinchas Zukerman, and legendary pianist Friedrich Gulda, who performed on a Fazioli F278 for his last tour.
Realizing early in life that piano is not the only thing he is passionate about, Raniero has for decades actively pursued photography, taking countless pictures of concert performances, landscapes, and architecture since 1981.
He was, at one point, aspiring to become an astronaut, alas he never went in space; however, he did retain his keen interest in astronomy. A life-long chef and a gourmand, Raniero is especially particular about not overcooking pasta: al dente is the way, and the only way.
