Gian Francesco Malipiero

Malipiero, Gian Francesco (jän fränchāˈskō mälēpyāˈrō) [key], 1882–1973, Italian composer. Malipiero studied in Venice and Bologna with Enrico Bossi and taught at the Conservatory of Parma, at the Univ. of Padua, and in Venice. He did important research in early Italian music, edited the works of Monteverdi (16 vol., 1926–42), Vivaldi, and others, and published studies of the music. Rispetti e strambotti (1920) is among his best-known chamber works. His compositions include songs, concertos, choral works, orchestral music, and numerous operas. His work is strongly influenced by older Italian music and French innovations of the early 20th cent.
