Gian Carlo Menotti: a profile

Menotti was an Italian-American composer and although he often referred to himself as an American composer, he always maintained his Italian citizenship.


Born 1911 / Died 2007


He was a talented composer but an equally talented librettist and he won the pulitzer prize not only once but twice for his works The Consul and The Saint of Bleecker Street.

He died in Monaco but is buried in Scotland where he spent the latter years of his life and jokingly referred to himself as ‘Mr McNotti’.
