Giulia Recli

Giulia Recli (1890 – 19 December 1970)[1] was an Italian composer and essayist.

Born in Milan,[1] Recli was a student under Ildebrando Pizzetti and Victor de Sabata, learning piano, composition and singing. She was awarded first and second prizes at New York musical competitions.[2] Recli's works were introduced to American audiences by Tullio Serafin.[3] In 1926, at a Metropolitan Opera concert headlining Belgian violinist, César Thomson, Recli's Chimes at Sunrise was performed.[4] In 1931, Recli's Nicolette s'Endorte, described by The New York Times as a "graceful lullaby",[3] was performed at the Metropolitan Opera by Mario Vitetta (solo violin) in a concert devoted to the French Tenor Georges Thill.[3] In 1965 a concert of her work and three other female composers was performed in Rome at an RAI symphony concert.[5]
