Michele Esposito.

By J.C. Dibble

Abstract

Jeremy Dibble skillfully reconstructs the life and career of Michele Esposito, a figure of seminal importance in the history of Irish music of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Neapolitan by birth and education, Esposito moved to Dublin in 1882 and became an artistic leader in the organization of the chamber concerts for the Royal Dublin Society and the foundation of the Dublin Orchestral Society, the city's first professional orchestra. He was also involved with the Literary Revival and the Feis Ceoil during the turbulent half-century he spent in Dublin. This important book introduces us to the life and work of a dedicated artist, teacher and organizer whose influence needs to be recognized and appreciated both by all who are interested either in music or in Irish cultural history
