Andrea Stefano Fiorè - Andrea Stefano Fiorè

Andrea Stefano Fiorè (* 1686 in Milan , † October 6, 1732 in Turin ) was an Italian composer of the late Baroque .


Andrea Stefano Fiorè received lessons from his father Angelo Maria Fiorè , Giovanni Paolo Colonna and a priest named Giorgio Boni . At the age of 13, Fiorè published his first works, a collection of 12 trio sonatas , which he dedicated to Viktor Amadeus II , the Prince of Savoy and Prince of Piedmont. In 1697 he was accepted into the Accademia Filarmonica in Bologna with his father . In the period from 1703 to 1705 he studied together with Giovanni Battista Somis , on behalf of the Turin court, with Arcangelo Corelliin Rome. In 1707 Fiorè received the position of court conductor in Turin, which he held until the end of his life. During this time he composed numerous operas, most of which were performed at the "Teatro Regio Ducal". During the period from 1704 to 1714, when the Turin theater was closed, Fiorè was able to perform several operas in other cities, such as Milan and Vienna, where he worked with Antonio Caldara and Francesco Gasparini . Johann Joachim Quantz , who met him in Turin in 1726, was one of his admirers. [1] [2]
