Music by Luigi Maria Viviani

Luigi Maria Viviani was an Italian composer, conductor and violinist of Florentine origin. He was primarily noted for his ballet scores, most of them composed for the choreographers Giovanni Galzerani and Antonio Cortesi. His 1851 score for Fausto was particularly praised for its obbligato written for the bimbonclaro (a variation on the bass clarinet invented by the Florentine clarinetist and instrument-maker, Giovanni Bimboni).
