Gian Francesco Malipiero

Gian Francesco Malipiero was born in Venice on 18 March 1882. He studied as a composer, but spent valuable years transcribing early Italian music and wrote books on Antonio Vivaldi and others. He destroyed most of his own music prior to 1914 and was then prolific to his death (1 August 1973; Treviso).
