1. Pier Franceso Cavalli
Biography with emphasis on his operas and relationship with Monteverdi. Includes MIDI audio files.
When he was born 1602 in Crema, his name was Pier Francesco Caletti. He was taken to Venezia by a wealthy patron when he was only 14 - Pier Francesco was an outstanding singer - and took on the patron's name, Cavalli, as a sign of gratitude. He started as organist at San Zipolo, then was contracted as a singer and later on as an organist at San Marco. Finally he became maestro di cappella and thus Monteverdi's successor. He died in Venezia in 1676 as a wealthy man. Cavalli has, of course, met Monteverdi. After all, Monteverdi was his boss at San Marco, and they worked together on a few other occasions, too. It is obvious that Cavalli was influenced by Him who was already seen as the greatest composer of the time. After Monteverdi's death, Cavalli succeeded him on that throne. He was even invited to Paris to write a festive opera for the wedding of Louis XIV, Ercole Amante - a rare honour indeed, but for some obscure reason, he was almost completely forgotten until not so long ago. Cavalli's operas carry on the master's style although his later works reflect a general development towards what would become the typical style of baroque opera, i.e. a regular succession of recitativo - aria - rectitativo - aria etc. At least he didn't give in to the new fashion of da capo arias, i.e. arias divided into three parts where the third part was only a more elaborate version of the first, allowing the singer to show off their

Cavalli, (Pier) Francesco,
original name PIER FRANCESCO CALETTI-BRUNI (b. Feb. 14, 1602, Crema, republic of Venice [Italy]d. Jan. 14, 1676, Venice), the most important Italian composer of opera in the mid-17th century. The son of Gian Battista Caletti-Bruni, he assumed the name of his Venetian patron Federico Cavalli. In 1617 he became a singer in the choir of St. Mark's, Venice, under Claudio Monteverdi , whose opera Orfeo established opera as a permanent genre. Cavalli subsequently held various posts there, becoming maestro di cappella in 1668. During his lifetime he exercised a considerable influence on European taste. Didone (1641) is perhaps his most interesting work, but it was his Egisto, given in Paris in 1646, that initiated the rivalry between French and Italian styles. As a dramatic composer Cavalli wrote for a small string orchestra, and his operas require no trained chorus. He wrote few concerted numbers for soloists, but his works have signs of the beginnings of the formal recitative aria technique, sometimes even with a da capo section. Compensation for the level character of his operatic music was provided by the brilliant costumes and lavish sets, without which, in spite of their dramatic power and grotesque humour, Cavalli's works are incomplete. Although performed throughout Italy, these dramma per musica were generally written especially for the public opera houses that flourished in 17th-century Venice. Twenty-seven of his 42 operas are preserved in manuscript in the library of St. Mark's, and renewed interest in Cavalli has resulted in numerous revivals, recordings, and publications of his operas.

The Italian composer Cavalli was possibly the most important composer of Italian opera in the third quarter of the 17th century. Recent revivals of his work in the theatre have served to bring his name before a more general public. He became a choir-boy at St. Mark's in Venice in 1616 and enjoyed a subsequent close working relationship with Monteverdi, maestro di musica of the basilica. He wrote music for the theatre and the church. Operas Cavalli wrote over 40 operas including a version of the legend of Medea, Giasone, and the operas Egisto and Serse, among a series of works chiefly relying on ancient Greek or Roman legend or history, some of which have enjoyed successful modern revival.

Francesco Cavalli [Caletti]
Italian composer and singer. He was the son of Giovanni Battista Caletti, organist and maestro di capella at the cathedral at Crema. As a boy Francesco apparently excelled as a singer in the local choir; Venetian nobleman and governor Federico Cavalli noticed the boy and in 1616 persuaded the elder Caletti to let Francesco accompany him to Venice, where he would see to his musical studies. Young Caletti was immediately taken into the choir of St. Mark's (Monteverdi was maestro), where he remained for a decade. From 1620 he was also one of the organists at SS. Giovanni e Paolo. His first known composition appeared in 1625 in a collection of solo motets, Ghirlanda sacra. In 1630 his marriage to Maria Sozomeno, member of a wealthy family, provided him with a measure of personal economic stability that enabled him to spend the rest of his life involved in financially insecure operatic ventures. In 1639, when the post of second organist at St. Mark's became vacant, Cavalli was the unanimous choice for the position. That same year his first opera, Le nozze di Teti e di Peleo (libretto by Orazio Persiani), was performed in Venice. It was followed by a number of successes throughout the 1740s:
