Marchesi de Castrone, Salvatore (full name and title, Salvatore Marchesi, Cavaliere de Castrone, Marchese della Rajata)

Marchesi de Castrone, Salvatore (full name and title, Salvatore Marchesi, Cavaliere de Castrone, Marchese della Rajata), distinguished Italian baritone and teacher, father of Blanche Marchesi (de Castrone); b. Palermo, Jan. 15, 1822; d. Paris, Feb. 20, 1908. Of a noble family, he was destined for a government career and studied law in Palermo; however, he turned to music, and took lessons in singing and theory with Raimondi in Palermo, and with Lamperti in Milan. He was involved in the revolutionary events of 1848, and was compelled to leave Italy; went to N.Y., where he made his operatic debut as Carlos in Emani. He then studied with Garcia in London, where he made his first British appearance in 1850. In 1852 he married Mathilde Marchesi de Castrone (née Graumann). After singing at the Berlin Royal Opera (1852–53) and in Ferrara (1853), he taught at the Vienna Cons. (1854–61). In 1863–64 he returned to London to sing at Her Majesty’s Theatre. After teaching at the Cologne Cons. (1865–68) and again at the Vienna Cons. (1868–78), he settled in Paris in 1881. He wrote a book on singing as well as a number of songs.

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.
