Notes and Editorial Reviews
Eleuterio Lovreglio was an exceptionally talented composer. From 1917 to 1919 he was first violin of the La Scala theatre’s orchestra conducted by Toscanini, and from 1919 he moved to France, where he was mainly active in Paris and Nice.
Lovreglio’s works blend French and Chinese musical influences (the latter absorbed during his stay in China), using approaches aimed at composing freer, more personal music, far from stereotyped patterns. Endowed with uncommon musicality, he was able to write incredibly modern works, many of which are, regrettably, still unknown.
