MusicAtlas: Napoli/Napels

Napoli is the place of composers Francesco Feo (*1691–†1761), Giovanni Paisiello (†1816), Nicola Porpora (*1686–†1768), Fr. Provenzale (*1626–†1704), and Ruggiero Leoncavallo (*1858).

Tinctoris and Gaffurius in the 15th c., Diego Ortiz in the 16th c., Gesualdo around 1600.

Music education in four “conservatories” (orphanages), of which the Pietà dei Turchini developed into the actual Conservatorio. They were instrumental in the rise of the so-called Neapolitan School of opera, esp. opera buffa, which reached its climax in the first half of the 18th c.

Great singing tradition: from popular canzonette Napolitane to Farinelli and Caruso.
