CIRO PINSUTI (1829--1888), Anglo-Italian composer, was born at Siena, and was 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 favourite songs and part-songs, as well as of three operas brought out in Italy, and it is by the former that he is still remembered.
