Il cavalier Ferdinando Giorgetti, musicista romantico a Firenze
edited by Claudio Paradiso
(Essay, 1)

232 pp.; 15 x 21 cm

Ferdinando Giorgetti (1796-1867) was a leading musical figure in 19th-century Florence. A violinist, composer, and respected teacher, he helped innovate and disseminate instrumental music through writing and transcribing, as well as having Viennese and Italian masterpieces performed. He left an oratorio, sacred music, orchestral overtures, violin and flute concertos, and, most of all, chamber music—variations and polonaises for violin and piano, violin duets, string trios, quartets, quintets, and sextets.This volume contains the first detailed reconstruction of Giorgetti's life. His musical output is discussed, with specific insights on some genres (quartets, sextets, viola method). Also, his work as a journalist and his relationship with Franz Liszt are treated. Catalogue of works and bibliography round up the book.
