Casella, Alfredo Composers Composition Music

Early 20th Century composer Alfredo Casella (1883-1947) was born in Turin to a musical family. An excellent pianist, he gradually moved into composition and conducting, embracing more modern forms of musical expression. He also embraced Italian Fascism, which led to his works being shunned for a time. He established the Corporazione delle Nuove Musiche, which had, for a time, members such as Respighi, Malipiero, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, and Vittorio Gui. Casella wrote operas, ballets, symphonies, concertos, other orchestral pieces, and chamber and instrumental music.
