Francesco Paolo Tosti

Born: 1846. Died: 1916. Lived in: Italy

The figure of Francesco Paolo Tosti although very original in the nineteenth-twentieth century scene of Italian musicians, has been revealed through a study promoted by Tosti's National Institute of Ortona such as one of the major European musicians of the time.

Tosti has been an atypical and original musician for his times, in fact he did not write even a line about a lyric opera. He had in his lots of ways of "served" the music: he has been a composer and a renowned singing teacher of his times, he has been a high level musical organiser of the English court under three sovereigns (Queen Victoria, King Eduard VII and King George V). He has been even an expert of editorial marketing and Giulio Ricordi wanted him as a supervisor of the London branch of Casa Ricordi. Almost for thirty years, from 1875 to 1913, he has been all of this in London becoming one of the most important figure of the english music and achieving the title of "Sir" in 1908.
