Concone, Giuseppe


Noted Italian singing and piano teacher and also an organist of ability. Born in Turin. He lived and taught in Paris from 1832 to 1848. During this time he published a number of piano pieces and a set of studies for that instrument. In 1848 he returned to Turin, where he was appointed organist of the Royal Chapel. He is known chiefly by his Vocal Exercises, of which he published five books. These exercises are for soprano, mezzosoprano, barytone and bass. They have been republished a number of times and are highly thought of and largely used by singing teachers.
