Everything you need to know about Giuseppe Verdi - the greatest Italian opera composer of the 19th century. Still performed all around the world, Verdi's works are among the greatest hits of the past 150 years.
Verdi went to Milan when he was 20 to continue his studies. He took private composition lessons while attending operatic performances and concerts, often of specifically German music. He gave his first public performance in Bussetto in 1830 at the home of Barezzi, a local merchant and music lover who had long supported his musical ambitions.
