 Update me on new releases by Pizzini

Carlo Alberto Pizzini (3/22/1905 - 9/09/1981)

Carlo Alberto Pizzini was born in Rome on 22 March 1905 and studied composition with Ottorino Respighi. He graduated from the Bologna Conservatory in 1929.

At the age of only nineteen Pizzini founded the ‘Concerts for the musical education of students’ in Rome, with support from the Ministry of Education. Between 1932 and 1937 he was a Music Inspector for the Italian Authors’ and Publishers’ Society (SIAE), which made him an honorary distinguished member in 1954. From 1938 to 1970 he had an executive position at Italian Radio and Television (RAI). The Accademia of Santa Cecilia, the famous musical society and concert organisation in Rome, elected Pizzini to its ranks in 1942, and he served as its Vice President from 1973 until his death. In 1967 Pizzini was elected to the Philharmonic Academy of Bologna, an honour he said was especially important to him because two centuries earlier the Bologna society had conferred the same distinction on Mozart.
