Antonio Bazzini (3/11/1818 - 2/10/1897)

Antonio Bazzini was born in Brescia on 11 March 1818. He came from an ancient Brescian family, mentioned in chronicles as early as the 1400s, but by the early nineteenth century his father was in straitened circumstances that bordered on poverty. Bazzini’s godfather, Antonio Buccelleni, was in a position to provide both financially and culturally for young Bazzini. A literary man, Buccelleni wrote odes, sonnets, and other poems, including a translation of the Psalms. Bazzini’s scores for several of Buccelleni’s poems were among Bazzini’s first compositions, La Sera – Romanza, and All’amica lontana. When Bazzini was seven and a half years old, Buccelleni engaged Kapellmeister Faustino Camisani to teach the boy the violin. Though Camisani died in 1830, Bazzini had certainly learned his lessons well and was said to have had a solid technique in 1829 when he was eleven years old. At seventeen Bazzini was himself a maestro di cappella for the church of San Filippo in Brescia. His early works were often religious in nature, and while at San Filippo he wrote Masses, Vespers, and six oratorios. His life materially changed on 20 March 1836, when he played first violin in a quintet by Luigi Savi. The work was dedicated to Paganini and the dedicatee was in the audience. Paganini advised the young man to tour as a virtuoso, and Bazzini took this advice to heart. Beginning in 1837 he toured Milan, Venice, Trieste, Vienna, and Budapest; from 1841–1845 he toured Germany, Denmark, and Poland. One review by a Milanese
