(1882 - 1949)

Riccardo Pick-Mangiagalli was born in Strakonice, Bohemia in 1882, but was to all intents and purposes a Milanese composer: having moved to Milan as a small child, he studied at the city’s conservatory—piano with Appiani and composition with Ferroni—and succeeded Pizzetti to become its director in 1936, remaining in the post until his death in 1949. Like Respighi and Pizzetti, therefore, he too was a composer of the ‘generation of the 1880s’, which played such a key rôle in the resurgence in Italian instrumental music. Pick-Mangiagalli contributed to this revival as both composer and performer, having established a notable career for himself as a pianist (and duo partner of his violinist brother Roberto), in the years leading up to the First World War. It is not surprising, therefore, that among his early works, before his focus switched principally to stage and orchestral music, there should be compositions for piano and violin.
