Mascagni Return to List of Composers
Pietro Mascagni was born in Italy in 1863. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1945. Mascagni

Pietro Mascagni (1863-1945) is a 'one-hit' composer, virtually only known for his opera Cavalleria Rusticana. He was born in Livorno, Italy, and studied under Ponchielli at the Milan Conservatory.   He became famous in 1890 after the first performance of "Cav", with its melodies resembling Italian folk song, combined with rich orchestration and a passionate fast-moving plot. Sadly, he endorsed Mussolini's fascist regime for political favour, and took over La Scala Milan, after Toscanini conscientiously resigned from there in 1929. He died only one year after Mussolini was defeated, in a shabby hotel in Rome.
