Baldassare Galuppi

The Venetian composer and keyboard player Baldassare Galuppi ('Il Buranello') was born at Burano (hence the nickname) on 18 October 1706. He studied with Lotti and became Maestro di musica at the Ospedale dei Mendicanti. He wrote opere serie for the King's Theatre in London, ran the music at St Mark's in Venice, turned to opera buffa (teaming up with playwright Carlo Goldoni) and worked in the chapel of Catherine the Great in Russia. Galuppi died in Venice on 3 January 1785.
