Ciro Pinsuti.

Ciro Pinsuti (9 May 1829 – 10 March 1888) was an Anglo-Italian composer.

He was born in Sinalunga (Siena), Italy, and educated in music, for a career as a pianist, partly in London and partly at Bologna, where he was a pupil of Rossini. From 1848 he made his home in England, where he became a teacher of singing, and in 1856 he was made a professor at the Academy of Music in London. He became well known as a composer of numerous favorite songs and part-songs, as well as of three operas brought out in Italy, and it is by the former that he is most remembered.
