Boschi, Giuseppe Maria

Boschi, Giuseppe Maria, Italian bass who flourished in the late 17th century and the first half of the 18th century. He married the contralto Francesca Vanini in 1698. After singing in Venice (1707; 1708-09), he went to London with his wife and made his first appearance there in Mancini’s Idaspe fedele on Nov. 19, 1710. On Feb. 24, 1711, he created the role of Argante in Handel’s Rinaldo. After singing again in Venice (1713–14), he appeared in Dresden (1717–20), after which he was called to London by Handel to serve as one of the principal members of his Royal Academy of Music opera productions (1720–28). He subsequently returned once more to Venice, where he sang in opera (1728–29) and later in the choir at San Marco.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
