Gervasio MarcosignoriToday one of the brightest stars of the accordion is died at the age of 85 year. Gervasio Marcosignori, the Poet of the Accordion, one of the brightest talent by virtue of its great technical skills and interpretive skills is died this morning (9th March 2013) at the Hospital of Cesena. H an emblematic character, an artist and at the same time, a father figure to all accordionists who have always helped his availability and his wise counsel, goes away. Strumenti&Musica Magazine shares the grief of the whole town of Castelfidardo and all musicians who knew and frequented over the years and so participate in the final ovation for a friend who has given so much to the accordion and therefore, can never be forgotten.

    Gervasio Marcosignori and I became friends during the age of Farfisa Musical Instruments.  I had the pleasure of arranging several concerts in the Toronto, Canada area many years ago and marvelled at the musical wizardry of Gervasio.  He was also an extremely warm and intelligent man and had time for everyone.  His music will live on while we all mourn a wonderful man and wonderful musiician.  God Bless you Gervasio.  Dave and Patricia Hinschberger and Paul Rousom.

    Learning to play the accordion and hearing Gervasio Marcosignori play when I was nine years old has shaped my entire life. He was the greatest inspiration any child could have, and over the years we have met up on many occasions. He was so very special and will never be equalled. Gervasio Marcosignori, thank you for your music and your friendship. You will be remembered always. R.I.P. Heather Smith (England)

    Desidero
    esprimere la mia più sincera commozione per la scomparsa del grande Maestro Gervasio Marcosignori ma, pur associandomi al ricordo del personaggio pubblico, grandissimo
    fisarmonicista di fama mondiale , desidero testimoniare e ricordare anche una
    circostanza del suo privato che ho sempre considerato come esempio della sua
    moralità. Pur essendo un Fidardense doc mi è stato riferito, ed ho avuto modo
    di sentirlo personalmente in più occasioni, che parlando della storia della
    fisarmonica ha sempre avuto l’onestà intellettuale di riconoscere anche a
    Mariano Dallapè i grandi meriti nel suo sviluppo. Ricordo che lo ha fatto anche
    durante un discorso in un Convegno a Castelfidardo al quale ero presente. Ho
    ammirato sinceramente il suo coraggio, perchè solo poche persone avrebbero
    sostenuto questa tesi di fronte ai loro concittadini con la quasi certa
    possibilitá di attirarsi forti critiche. In tempi nei quali lo spirito
    campanilistico è così spesso esasperato , Gervasio ha dato veramente un
    bell’esempio ! Mi unisco quindi a tutti quanti l’hanno stimato e porgo ai suoi
    familiari e a tutta la Cittadinanza di Castelfidardo le mie più sentite
    condoglianze per la scomparsa del grandissimo musicita al quale va tutta la mia
    ammirazione e il mio ringraziamento per aver diffuso nel mondo quello che è
    stato, e rimane, lo strumento della mia vita.
    Amleto Dallapè
