Many, many years ago, my now-deceased piano teacher lent me a book of charming piano miniatures by a very obscure, romantic Italian composer whose name I completely forgot. If my memory serves me right, I read in the preface of the book that this Italian composer was born somewhere in the mid-1800s (say around 1850) and he was from a more remote, rural part of Italy (so not Rome or Milano). The music itself was a better kind of salon music, and very Italian in flavor. One piece that struck me in particular was a piece based on the prelude of Bach's First Cello Suite (I remember the Bach prelude was in the left hand and the right hand played a lovely melody on top of it). I've been searching for the name of this composer for years now. Anyone happens to know it?
