 How to contact Alessandro Licostini?
Author: pandaclarinet

I've just bought his mouthpiece.
Best mouthpiece I've ever played.

So, I wonder if anyone know how to contact him.
I want to ask him about Alto clarinet/Basset horn mouthpiece.
And maybe for some custom Bb clarinet one request.

Thanks,
Kita

If no one provides a direct way to contact Licostini, perhaps you could get some information about how to contact him from this music store in Rome, Italy. They appear to stock at least seven different models of his mouthpiece and might be willing to give you some clues about how to get in touch with him directly: LaM.U.sica.srl http://www.lamusica.eu.

Which model did you get? The Swiss clarinetist and teacher Francois Benda also sells mouthpieces under his name that have been produced by Licostini. But Benda may be as hard to contact as Licostini. For Licostini, it probably helps to know Italian. At one time Howarth's in London carried Benda FB mouthpieces. Howarth is pretty easy to contact, so you might start there.

Thank you!

I tried to contact the store that sold it for me, too.
But they don't have any contact with Licostini himself.

By the way, I got model "FDC 5" from Singapore, which I'm very fond of.

Licostini is an active performer on both soprano and bass clarinet, and he gives master classes in Italian conservatories and music schools, so contacting professors in Italy might be useful. He is also the author of a clarinet book called Psici-anatomia bei Clarinettista or (according to one translation I have seen) Psyco-anatomy of the Clarinet (available from Prestomusic.com.) It would be helpful to see a description of the measurements and playing characteristics of each of the many models of mouthpieces he produces but I have never seen that in English or any other language for that matter. https://youtube.com/results?search_query=alessandro+licostini+Cerchio+Nigi+giuia.

If you find more information about Licostini's mouthpieces, please post it here so we can all learn more.
