Notes and Editorial Reviews

Nicolas Flagello was one of the 20th century's leading exponents of traditional late romantic musical values. Without ever repudiating this aesthetic outlook, he succeeded in forging a personal musical language and a distinctive body of work shaped by his own temperament and embodying his own unique perspective on life. Born in New York City, Flagello grew up in a musical family with deep roots in old-world traditions. Something of a prodigy, he was composing and performing in public as a pianist before the age of ten. While still a child, he began a long and intensive apprenticeship with Vittorio Giannini, who further imbued him with the enduring values of the grand European tradition. His study continued at the Manhattan School of Music, Read more where he earned both his Bachelor's (1949) and Master's (1950), joining the faculty immediately upon graduation and remaining there until 1977. He composed at a prodigious rate producing a body of work that includes six operas, two symphonies, eight concertos, and numerous orchestral, choral, chamber and vocal works. In addition, he was active as a pianist and conductor. In 1985, a deteriorating illness brought his musical career to an end prematurely. He died in 1994 at the age of 66. Read less
