Examples of "boito"
Born in Padua, the son of Silvestro Boito, an Italian painter of miniatures and his wife, a Polish countess, Józefina Radolińska, Boito studied music at the Milan Conservatory with Alberto Mazzucato until 1861 and where a friend was Albert Visetti. His older brother, Camillo Boito, was an Italian architect and engineer, and a noted art critic, art historian and novelist.
When he heard of the newspaper report, Boito was horrified. Writing immediately to Verdi, he states:
Luca Fanfoni is a violin professor at the Parma Conservatory "Arrigo Boito".
Arrigo Boito (; 24 February 1842 10 June 1918) (whose original name was Enrico Giuseppe Giovanni Boito and who wrote essays under the anagrammatic pseudonym of Tobia Gorrio), was an Italian poet, journalist, novelist, librettist and composer, best known today for his libretti, especially those for Giuseppe Verdi's operas "Otello" and "Falstaff", and his own opera "Mefistofele". Along with Emilio Praga, and his own brother Camillo Boito he is regarded as one of the prominent representatives of the Scapigliatura artistic movement.
The piano-vocal score was completed in 1867 while Boito was visiting relatives in Poland.
Meanwhile, Boito began work on the libretto in spite of illness and, by late October/early November had sent a copy of the work so far. After appealing to Giuseppina, Ricordi was told that the Verdis would be coming to Milan and that he would meet privately with Boito. However, she noted in her letter of 7 November: "Between ourselves, what Boito has so far written of the African seems to please him, and is very well done."
Pietro Veneri (born 1964) is an Italian conductor, and professor of conducting at the Conservatorio Arrigo Boito in Parma.
"Spanish, Italian and Oriental tales", including stories by I. M. Palmarini, Camillo Boito, Antonio Fogazzaro and Pedra de Alarcon.
Nerone (Nero) is an opera in four acts composed by Arrigo Boito, to a libretto in Italian written by the composer. The work is a series of scenes from Imperial Rome at the time of Emperor Nero depicting tensions between the Imperial religion and Christianity, and ends with the Great Fire of Rome. Boito died in 1918 before finishing the work.
Boito made further minor revisions during 1876, and this version was first performed in Venice on 13 May 1876. The first British performance took place at Her Majesty's Theatre, London on 6 July 1880 and the American premiere was on 16 November 1880 in Boston. Thereafter, Boito continued to make small changes until the final definitive production in Milan on 25 May 1881.
After finishing his studies he began his career as a composer. His first collaboration with Boito was on a patriotic cantata, "Il quattro giugno" in 1860 when Boito also wrote some of the music as well as the text, and this was followed by a sequel, "La sorelle d'Italia", also in the spirit of the movement towards Italian unification. With these pieces, both young men received entrees into Italian society, hence Faccio's association with Countess Maffei and the letters of introduction which followed which allowed both him and Boito access to Rossini in Paris in 1862.
Camillo Boito (; October 30, 1836 – June 28, 1914) was an Italian architect and engineer, and a noted art critic, art historian and novelist.
At the age of 16, he began his vocal studies as a baritone at Arrigo Boito Conservatory in Parma with Maestro Ettore Campogalliani.
Arrigo Boito, Camillo's younger brother, was a noted poet, composer and the author of the libretti for Giuseppe Verdi's last two great operas, "Otello" and "Falstaff".
He trained in piano and composition with Camillo Togni at the Conservatorio “Arrigo Boito” in Parma, where he graduated in conducting with Daniele Gatti.
There then occurred an event which unsettled both Verdi and Boito, and which nearly caused the project to come to a complete stop. While attending a banquet in Naples following the successful presentation of his opera "Mefistofele", Boito gave an interview to a journalist and, in trying to keep information about the proposed "Otello" as quiet as possible, appears to have been misquoted by another journalist who overheard part of the conversation. The key point was that Boito, himself a composer, appeared to want to compose the music for "Otello" himself. When Verdi read this in a Milan newspaper, he was horrified and, in a letter to Faccio (rather than directly confronting Boito) stated that he wanted Faccio to directly tell the librettist that "I will give him his manuscript intact, without a shadow of resentment, without rancor of any kind".
In November Boito took the completed first act to Verdi at Sant'Agata, along with the second act, which was still under construction: "That act has the devil on its back; and when you touch it, it burns", Boito complained. They worked on the opera for a week, then Verdi and his wife Giuseppina Strepponi went to Genoa. No more work was done for some time.
Secondly, two up-and-coming Italian writers, Arrigo Boito and Franco Faccio, met with Verdi at the end of February 1862, bearing a letter of introduction from Countess Clara Maffei. Marvin suggests the purpose of the meeting might have been to indirectly prompt Verdi to work on the commission. As a result of this meeting, Boito was charged with writing the text of the proposed work.
Boito wrote very little music, but completed (and later destroyed) the opera, "Ero e Leandro", and left incomplete a further opera, "Nerone", which he had been working at, on and off, between 1877 and 1915. Excluding its last act, for which Boito left only a few sketches, "Nerone" was finished after his death by Arturo Toscanini and Vincenzo Tommasini and premiered at La Scala, 1924. He also left a Symphony in A minor in manuscript.
Although Verdi's aim to write the music for an opera based on Shakespeare's "King Lear" never came to fruition—despite the existence of a libretto—Boito provided subtle and resonant libretti for Verdi's last two masterpieces, "Otello" (which was based on Shakespeare's play "Othello") and "Falstaff" based on "The Merry Wives of Windsor" and parts of "Henry IV". After their years of close association, when Verdi died in 1901, Boito was at his bedside.
