Johannes Goritzki


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Johannes Goritzki, on December 22nd 2018, at the age of 76, in Lugano, Switzerland.

We have lost a loving father, grandfather, husband, brother and a wonderful musician. His spirit will live on forever, personally and professionally. He has left an overwhelming treasure of records which we can all enjoy for his uniquely colourful playing and conducting.

He will always be remembered for his love and caring and as someone who courageously kept on keeping on. Rest in peace.

In Johannes’ honour there will be a public farewell concert by his students. It will take place on Saturday, April 27th 2019, 4:00 p.m. at Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana (Lugano, Switzerland). There is no dress code but please do not appear dressed in black.

Johannes’ family.
