AGOSTINO GABUCCI (1896 - 1976)
Having graduated in clarinet from Milan’s G. Verdi Conservatory (1920), Agostino Gabucci played in the orchestras of La Scala, Milan and Italian Radio in Rome, as well as overseas (Egypt and Brazil). He also taught at the conservatories of Cagliari, Florence and Rome. He wrote a remarkable number of studies and other pieces for his instrument which were published throughout Europe and the Americas. Originally composed in 1935 for clarinet and piano, the Aria e Scherzo was reworked in 1968 to create a version for clarinet and string orchestra.
