Biographical history

Francesco Gnecco, composer, was born in Genoa, ca. 1769. He was primarily a composer of operas but also wrote chamber and sacred music. The most famous of his twenty-five operas is La prova d'un opera sera. It was originally in one act with a libretto by Artusi and titled La prima prova dell'opera gli orazi e curiazi (Venice, 1803). It was changed to a two act work with Gnecco's own libretto (Milan, 1805) and performed throughout Europe until 1860. Gnecco died in Milan in 1810 or 1811.
