Renato de Grandis (born October 24, 1927 in Venice, Italy - died December 2, 2008) was an Italian musicologist and composer. He first studied composition and musicology in his home town at the conservatory "Benedetto Marcello" and attended master classes in Siena from 1951. Already in 1945 he received the first prize of the Italian Rundfunk for young composers and in 1953 the first Italian national prize for composition. Since the mid-1950s de Grandis had lived and worked mainly in Darmstadt.

After completing his training, he dealt especially with the serial and the twelve-tone technique and also visited the Darmstadt vacation courses. De Grandis saw the focus of his compositional work in the opera. In his main work, "Il Cieco di Yuga" (The blind man of Yuga), he attempted to combine Far Eastern influences with ancient Italian and Dutch traditions, thus approaching the ideal of "total theater." He thus exercised considerable influence on the European music theater of his time. In addition to other music-dramatic works, he also presents works for orchestras, chamber music, choral works, and adaptations of works of the 17th and 18th centuries, particularly with the compositions of Vincenzo de Grandis (II). Renato de Grandis (* 24.

Oktober 1927 in Venedig; † 2. Dezember 2008) war ein italienischer Musikwissenschaftler und Komponist. Er studierte zunächst in seiner Heimatstadt am Konservatorium „Benedetto Marcello“ Komposition und Musikwissenschaften und besuchte ab 1951 Meisterkurse in Siena. Bereits 1945 erhielt er den ersten Preis des italienischen Rundfunks für junge Komponisten und im Jahr 1953 den 1. Nationalpreis Italiens für Komposition.

Seit Mitte der 1950er Jahre lebte und arbeitete de Grandis vorwiegend in Darmstadt, er hatte sich nach Abschluss seiner Ausbildung besonders mit der seriellen und der Zwölftontechnik auseinandergesetzt und auch die Darmstädter Ferienkurse besucht. De Grandis sah den Schwerpunkt seiner kompositorischen Arbeit in der Oper. In seinem Hauptwerk, „Il Cieco di Yuga“ (Der Blinde von Yuga), versuchte er, fernöstliche Einflüsse mit alten italienischen und niederländischen Traditionen zu verbinden, um so dem Ideal des „totalen Theaters“ nahezukommen. Hiermit übte er erheblichen Einfluss auf das europäische Musiktheater seiner Zeit aus. Neben weiteren musikdramatischen Werken liegen von ihm auch Werke für Orchester, Kammermusik, Chorwerke und Bearbeitungen von Werken des 17.

und 18. Jahrhunderts vor, wobei er sich insbesondere den Kompositionen Vincenzo de Grandis (II)' zuwandte. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
