Artists are mourning Pedro Kranz, cornerstone agent at Caecilia in Geneva. We are told he underwent surgery and did not survive.

He looked after Swiss engagements for a host of stars, and a select handful of artists whom he represented worldwide.




  • Orchestra Manager says:

    Not only artists but also managers and colleagues are mourning Pedro Kranz. He was not only the leading organizer of orchestra touring, but also himself a presenter of concerts with world artists basically in Geneva and Zurich. He was a very listening and wise man and it is difficult to think of music life in Switzerland without Monsieur Kranz. He is deeply missed. RIP

    Very sad. A lovely man (with a great sense of humour). Rest in peace.

  • Beinisch says:

    A wonderful person and a professional in his field.
    A real gentleman.
    I will miss him a lot.

  • Manu says:

    Key he was. Ask Alfonso Aijón or Rafael Nebot…

  • Uriel Segal says:

    Very sad. A personality all its own. A true gentleman beloved by many. RIP

  • Shmuel Ashkenasi says:

    I am heartbroken to learn of the passing of Pedro. He was a cultural asset, wonderful human being and a great friend. May he Rest In Peace.
