Balbo, Giuseppe Cesare.
Giuseppe Cesare Balbo papers, 1903-1956.
The Guiseppe Cesare Balbo papers are primarily made up of scores. The collection includes many original manuscripts, as well as some of his published works. There is a series of works by other composers that Balbo either transcribed exactly or revised and arranged. There are a few professional papers, including some of Balbo's essays, his photograph, and a resumé produced some time after his move to Brooklyn. There is virtually nothing of a personal nature in this collection.
Giuseppe Cesare Balbo (1888-1976) was an Italian conductor, composer, critic, and music teacher who became an American citizen and eventually moved to and taught in New York City. He was educated at the Royal Conservatories of Music in Florence and Lucca (Italy). He began his professional career in his twenties as a conductor, leading both orchestral and choral organizations. Balbo served as the editor of L'Italia Musicale in Florence and also published criticism in that journal and other music magazines. After moving to America he studied at Columbia University under Peter Dykema, then went on to focus on teaching bel canto singing, composition, and harmony. He continued to occasionally write for Italian and American music publications.
