Biographical History

Alfredo Soffredini (1854-1923) was an Italian composer, teacher and musical critic. He founded the Instituto Musicale di Livorno (later called Istituto Cherubini). "Dramma lirico" (in French, "drame lyrique") was a term used in the mid-19th century to refer to operas that were neither comique nor grand.
