Renzo Bracesco

Renzo Bracesco was born in Lima, Peru, in 1888. At an early age he began to study piano with Claudio Rebagliatti. In 1909, he went to Genoa to study solfège, harmony and counterpoint with Simplicio Gualco, and piano with Alberto Bersani. In 1913, he entered the composition class of Vicenzo Ferroni in the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan, at the same time receiving private piano lessons from Giuseppe Frugatta and orchestration classes with Edgardo Corio. He received diplomas in choral singing and composition (in 1919 and 1920, respectively). From 1923 to 1928, he was an adjunct professor of theory, solfège and dictation at the Conservatory of Milan, and from 1928 to 1933 he was the director of the Scuola di Musica Claudio Monteverdi in the same city. From 1933 to 1937, he was ad honorem consul of Peru in Milan. After WWI he returned to Peru, and in 1948, was appointed director of the regional music school in Trujillo. He returned to Genoa in 1957, where he spent his later years as a choirmaster and organist. He died in 1982.
Bracesco was well known during his lifetime in Peruvian artistic circles and is the composer of numerous works for chorus, organ, voice and piano, piano solo, chamber combinations and orchestra. His three-act opera, “Atahualpa,” was never finished.
