Giuseppe Verdi: A Nineteenth Century Italian Composer
Giuseppe Verdi was an Italian musical and opera composer who was very important and famous during the nineteenth century around the world. Verdi was born in a small town near Parma, Italy in 1813, which is in the middle of northern Italy, near Milan (Giuseppe-Verdi.net). Verdi first began to be interested in music when he heard the organ being played at his church when he was very young (Giuseppe-Verdi.net). When he was seven years old, Verdi’s father bought him a small used piano called a spinet so that he could learn to play music at home (Giuseppe-Verdi.net). Verdi became a very good musician very quickly, and started to play the organ for the church of San Michele
Arcangelo
