(1876 - 1930)

The Sicilian composer and conductor Salvatore Messina enjoyed a contemporary reputation. As a conductor he appeared internationally, from Moscow to Buenos Aires, but his compositions have been largely neglected since his death.


Messina’s opera La beffa a Don Chisciotte (‘The Joke on Don Quixote’) was written between 1926 and 1930, but the orchestration was left unfinished at his death in 1930.
