Stefano Pavesi (01/01/1779 - 01/01/1850)

Stefano Pavesi was born in 1779 in a village near Crema in the Venetian Republic. His early musical studies were funded by members of the local aristocracy, in the best tradition of noble patronage, and it was also thanks to their generosity that he was able to move to Naples in 1795 and to continue his education at that city’s San Onofrio Conservatory.

In 1802, again with his patrons’ support, he moved back north to Venice to try his hand as an opera composer. Like Mayr before him, and then like Generali, Coccia and Rossini, Pavesi first made a name for himself in the comic genre of farsa (Un avvertimento ai gelosi, 1803). This success gave him access to the San Moisè theatre, which specialised in staging farse, and soon to La Scala and other prestigious opera houses across Italy, so that by the end of the first decade of the nineteenth century, he had well and truly established himself as a leading figure in the new generation of opera composers.
