Tully Potter

French string quartet, founded at the Paris Conservatoire in 1984 by Christophe Giovaninetti, Romano Tommasini, Miguel Da Silva and Carlos Dourthe. In 1985 Luc-Marie Aguera became the second violinist and in 1986 Michel Poulet became the cellist. From 1986 to 1989 the ensemble studied in Cologne with members of the Amadeus Quartet; it also worked with Walter Levin and with Hatto Beyerle – who recorded the Mozart G minor Quintet with it. In 1987 it won the second prize at the Trapani competition in Italy and in 1988 the second prize at Portsmouth and the first prize at Evian. While its beauty of tone and perfection of ensemble were much admired, both its interpretations and its platform deportment were mildly eccentric. A reorganization in 1995 saw Aguera and Da Silva joined by Guillaume Sutre as leader and Marc Coppey as cellist. This formation proved no less inspired but more orthodox in its interpretative outlook. The group has given the premières of works dedicated to it by André Boucou and Franck Krawczyk. Among its recordings are outstanding accounts of the string quartets by Debussy and Ravel and the piano quartets and quintets by Fauré, with Pascal Rogé....

Zanibon  

Mariangela Donà

Italian firm of publishers . It was founded at Padua in 1908 by Guglielmo Zanibon (b Padua, 5 Oct 1878; d Padua, 21 April 1966). After studying music in his native city he moved to New York, where in 1903 he founded the periodical The Mandolin. He played the double bass with various touring companies until Cleofonte Campanini appointed him general secretary and librarian to the orchestra of the Manhattan Opera House. Back in Padua in 1908, he associated himself with Alessandro Parisotti and managed a small music publishing house, of which he then took sole control, calling it ‘Edizioni Zanibon’. He worked with many well-known musicians, among them Marco Enrico Bossi and Dallapiccola. His large output included sacred music, instrumental and polyphonic works and Italian music of the 17th and 18th centuries. At his death the management of the house passed to his adopted son Guglielmo Travaglia Zanibon (...

[Zanetti]

Italian family of printers . They were active in the 16th and 17th centuries and three of them printed music in Rome. An early member of the family, Bartholomeo de Zanetti da Bressa, printed Pier Maria Bonini’s treatise Acutissime observationes at Florence in 1520. His name gives the only indication of the probable origin of the family. The first music printer in the family was Luigi Zannetti, who worked at Rome between 1602 and 1606 and printed mostly sacred music by Agostino Agazzari, Antonio Cifra and their contemporaries. Bartolomeo, probably his son, appears to have taken over at once, for he began to produce music in 1607. Between 1618 and 1621 he was printing at Orvieto, where he produced two music books, but he later returned to Rome. His output was much larger than his father’s and included music by most contemporary Roman composers and sacred music by other Italians. He published a series of anthologies of sacred works edited by Fabio Constantini (RISM ...

M.K. Duggan

(b Parma, c1450; d Milan, 1510). Italian printer . He was the first printer in Milan, from 1471.

Zarotto later printed the music of Ambrosian plainchant in the missal (...

Mariangela Donà

(fl late 18th century). Italian printer and publisher . He was in business with his sons under the name ‘Antonio Zatta e figli Librai e Stampatori veneti’, with premises in Venice ‘al traghetto di S Barnaba’; theirs was the largest engraving works in the city, their activity dating back to about 1750. The output included philosophical texts, novels, daily papers, illustrated books and 47 volumes of Carlo Goldoni’s comedies (1788). Music printing and editing began in 1783 through the Calcografia Filarmonica which was active until 1788. From 1786 the firm began printing, on its own press from engraved plates, a weekly piece of instrumental music for sale by subscription; in the following years this initiative expanded to include trios, duos, quartets, symphonies or sonatas for various instruments, and even vocal pieces, issued on a monthly basis. In the letters circulated to ‘professori e dilettanti di musica’, inviting them to become subscribers, the firm explained the preponderance of instrumental music by the fact that Italy ‘abounds without doubt more in professional and amateur players than in singers’. Instrumental works by Corelli, Bertoni, Boccherini, Capuzzi, Andreozzi, Cirri, Cambini, Pichl, Fodor, Stabinger, Grazioli, Haydn, Mozart and Salieri, and vocal pieces (arias by Cimarosa, Guglielmi, Paisiello, Anfossi, Naumann, Gazzaniga, Borghi, Traetta and Piccinni) were printed and published. Many of Zatta’s editions were reprints from German or Viennese publications, especially of Hoffmeister’s, a publisher with whom Zatta had connections. Zatta also published didactic methods (Pfeiffer, ...

Edward Garden

(b Sternberg, Sept 22, 1851; d Berlin, April 25, 1922). German music publisher and woodwind and brass instrument manufacturer . He had factories in St Petersburg (1876), Moscow (1882) and Riga (1903). The headquarters of the publishing firm was established in Leipzig in 1886, with the actual printing being carried out by Breitkopf & Härtel. Zimmermann became friendly with Balakirev in 1899 and thereafter published all the works of that composer. It may be that it was Zimmermann’s exhortations that encouraged the prolificness of the final decade of Balakirev’s life. He also published the majority of the compositions of Balakirev’s protégé Sergey Lyapunov. Other composers’ music published by him include Medtner, Josef Hofmann, Tausig, A.S. Taneyev and Reinecke. He suffered financial hardship during World War I, but, although he resumed the publication of music by Russian composers in 1919, he was unable to reopen his former Russian factories and shops.
