Ernesto Cavallini (8/30/1807 - 1/07/1874)

Ernesto Cavallini was born in Milan on 30 August 1807. At the age of nine he won a place at the Milan Conservatory, where he studied with Benedetto Carulli. He graduated in September 1824, and was appointed second clarinet alongside his former teacher at Milan’s Teatro Re where, in 1827, he also appeared several times as a soloist. That same year, he was highly praised for a performance of his Concerto in E flat major in one of the foyers of the Teatro alla Scala. He then took up a post at La Fenice in Venice and towards the end of the decade performed at La Scala several times as both soloist and orchestral musician.

Having served for a while as first clarinet of the band of Piedmont’s Grenadier Guards, he was appointed first clarinet of the La Scala orchestra (1831). Over the next two years, he gave many performances around Italy, alongside his violinist brother Eugenio, and flautist Giuseppe Rabboni. In 1839 he appeared to great acclaim in Venice, Trieste, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest. Two years later he played in Milan with the virtuoso cellist Alfredo Piatti and, in Novara, gave a much-praised performance of his Variations on a theme of Mercadante, under the baton of Mercadante himself. Soon afterwards he played in Paris, where he was made a member of the Académie des Beaux-Arts.
