(1818 - 1877)

The Italian flautist Cesare Ciardi, born in Prato in Tuscany, had the support of Paganini in his early career, establishing an international reputation as a virtuoso. In 1853 he moved to Russia, where he became chamber flautist to the Tsar, serving also on the staff of the newly established Conservatory, where he taught and formed a friendship with Tchaikovsky.

Flute Music

Ciardi’s compositions were principally but not exclusively for his own instrument, including works in which he could demonstrate his own virtuosity.
