RESPIGHI, Ottorino

--------------------
RESPIGHI, Ottorino
Ottorino Respighi

Ottorino Respighi (1879 - 1936) was an Italian composer, conductor, performer, and teacher who studied violin and composition first in Bologna, and then studied under Rimsky-Korsakov in St. Petersburg, and Max Bruch in Berlin. He once said that the ``Italian genius is for melody and clarity,'' two qualities that are apparent in his works, including the notable tone poems The Fountains of Rome, The Pines of Rome, The Birds, and Roman Festivals. In 1913, he was appointed teacher of composition at the Conservatorio di Santa Cecillia in Rome, where he settled permanently.
