Italian family of composers and musicians.
(b Vicenza, June 29, 1851; d Vicenza, March 24, 1933). Composer and teacher. A pupil of Francesco Canneti in Vicenza, he was organist at the cathedral there from 1885 until his death and also taught the piano, harmony, counterpoint and composition. Only the first two of his five operas were performed, and Seila (performed Vicenza, 1880), the first, was his only success. The plot is from the biblical story of Jephtha and is treated in the manner of a grand opera, with choruses shouting ‘Vittoria’, marching bands on stage, ballet etc. Critics considered Coronaro too much under the influence of Verdi and Gomes.
