Cilea, Francesco Composers Composition Music

Italian Romantic period composer Francesco Cilea (1866-1950) may have had even more success as a teacher and as an administrator of music schools. He is most remembered for his operas, particularly Adriana Lecouvreur, but also wrote orchestral, vocal, and chamber music---which may have been his strongest genre.
