The opera singer was born in Minerbio near Bologna, after debuting at the Teatro Comunale of Bologna in 1850, began a bright career that led him to cover many tenor roles and was in contact with the greatest musicians at the time, such as Rossini, Meyerbeer, Gounod, Perosi, Gomes and many many more.
During his career, which reached its peak with his appointment as first tenor at the Sao Carlos in Lisbon, directly nominated by the King Louis I of Portugal, he jealously kept this precious booklet and collected autographs of the musicians whose operas he sang. The result is this wonderful piece of musical history that includes, like a treasure box, little gems of memory of the greatest musicians of the second half of the 19th century.
Giving a sufficient economic value to this liber amicorum is almost impossible, because no coin will ever repay the thrill of diving into its golden pages and getting carried away by the musical kaleidoscope coming from the hands of immortal masters of music.
What is a Liber Amicorum:
The Liber Amicorum originates from the German Festschrift, a term that refers to a collection of writings to celebrate an academic achievement, a special occasion, or an anniversary. The oldest Festschrift that we know of dates back to 1640 and was made to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the press in Europe, by Gregor Ritsch in Leipzig. This type of publication was very much in vogue in the 18th century in academia, and it very often is, depending on the object of the compliments collected, a true gold mine of autographs.
The Liber Amicorum (from Liber = book + Amicorum = of friends), is a Latin term that designates a collection of signatures and congratulations from a more intimate circle of colleagues and friends.
Pietro Neri-Baraldi was born in Manerbio, a small town near Bologna, on 1 February 1826 to a peasant family.
His musical studies led him then to debut at the Teatro Comunale of Bologna in 1850.
In 1853 he was first tenor at the Teatro del Corso in Bologna, where he played important tenor roles like Manico in Il Trovatore, the Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto and Ubaldo in Elena da Feltre by Mercadante.
After the success Neri Baraldi moved to Paris, where he performed in the theatre season 1854/1855 of both the Opera and the Theatre Italien in Paris.
From 1856 to 1868 he was often in London, where he played numerous important roles both at the Lyceum Theatre at the Royal Opera House.
Her music career certainly reached its peak with his appointment as first tenor by the King of Portugal Louis I, for which he sang at the Sao Carlo of Lisbon.
In 1863 he married the Austrian soprano Antonietta Fricci (1840-1912) with whom he also had an artistic collaboration, sharing the stage with her.
In his later years he devoted himself to the teaching and had among his best students the South African soprano Ada Forrest - Cherry Kearton.
Pietro Neri-Baraldi died in Bologna on 29 June 1902 at the age of 76.
