1740 - 1816

Neapolitan composer of operas admired for their robust realism and dramatic power. Paisiello is known to have composed about 100 operas. His church music comprises about 40 masses and many smaller works. His instrumental music includes symphonies, a harp concerto, string quartets, and sonatas for harp and for violin and cello. In the 20th century, Il Barbiere di Siviglia and La Molinara were revived, and several of his operas and piano concerti, string quartets, and keyboard pieces were republished.  (Read more - Wikipedia article.)
