VITTORIO GIANNINI  

(1903 - 1966)

Vittorio Giannini was born in Philadelphia into a distinguished musical family, with two sisters who won distinction as singers. He taught at the Juilliard School, Curtis Institute, Manhattan School of Music, and finally, as the founding president, at the North Carolina School of the Arts. His students included John Corigliano, David Amram, Adolphus Hailstork, Alfred Reed, Nicolas Flagello and Thomas Pasatieri.

Music

A prolific composer, Giannini wrote more than a dozen operas, seven symphonies, many songs, and a number of concertos and choral, band and chamber works. His music is generally tonal and lyrical, skilfully crafted. He added particularly to concert-band repertoire.
