Born in Modena in 1806, Luigi Gordigiani grew up in a family of musicians; his father, Antonio Gordigiani, was a baritone who had won some renown for having sung in Rossini’s Aureliano in Palmira; his mother, Sofia Cruvelli, was also a singer. His elder brother, Giovanni Battista, was a baritone like his father, as well as a composer and respected singing teacher (in Prague). 
Despite his lack of success with opera, Luigi’s fame gradually grew, in Italy and abroad, but solely thanks to his vocal chamber compositions: he was acclaimed in Paris, London, Florence, while his romanze were published by the most important Italian and foreign publishers, and there was even a reviewer who went so far as to declare that “this Italian composer of songs is the equal of the German Schubert”.

Luigi Gordigiani is a Fantastic alternative to the usual lieder composers.
The score itself is made to the same high standards of their Martucci score: wonderful! You must hold these babies in your hands to truly appreciate the quality of the work. The music is incredible and I must admit I was never aware of Gordigiani but understand why he is known as the Italian Schubert.

Just Fantastic!
