Francesco Cilea

July 26, 1866 - November 20, 1950
born in Palmi, Italy, composed during the Romantic period
The reputation of Italian composer Francesco Cilea (1866-1950) primarily rests on one work, the verismo opera Adriana Lecouvreur (1902), based on the true story of an ill-fated eighteenth century actress. Cilea came from a middle-class background, and his family did not approve of his pursuit of music. Nevertheless, Cilea diligently worked to become a respected conservatory professor, composing on the side. Adriana Lecouvreur was preceded by one moderate operatic success, L'Arlesiana (1897), and a string of failures; afterward Cilea was unable to find further success and gave up composing by 1930, concentrating on teaching and in revising older works. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

Comments

I am so amazed the greatest music and operas were written and composed in the 17 and 18 centuries and probably in some very adverse living conditions! It is so hard to imagine the geniuses these men were!
It's amazing what those composers have achieved, regarding their economical situations, their financialpro b l e m s , mental, family approval, and even what could totally break them down. Exp: Andrea Bocelli, a man who totally became blind at the age of twelve. He became unstoppable after that. It's take a whole world to do that. They are really some geniuses. A YV
