Italian pianist and composer Alessandro Peroni (1874–1964) is a bit of a rarity. He appears in virtually no published dictionary or musical encyclopedia. Born in Mondavio, near Pesaro, Italy, he studied at the Liceo Musicale Rossini in Pesaro. From 1910 to 1939 he taught at the Liceo at the invitation of its director, Amilcare Zanella. Peroni composed over 250 different works, including pieces for orchestra, band, piano, chamber music, songs, organ works, and numerous transcriptions. He also composed three operas, Il maestro di Cavallara, La beffa, and Il signore del pigiama. Peroni toured throughout Italy as pianist, often playing his own compositions, and was praised as a “Pianista di straordinaria agilità, precisione e sensibilità interpretativa” (a pianist of extraordinary agility, precision and sensibility in interpretation). In 1987 his scores, manuscripts, personal papers and related materials were deposited at the Scuola Comunale di Musica di Mondavio, where scholars, musicians and the public now have the facility to study his legacy.
