Matilde Capuis
* 01.01.1913 in Neapel † 31.01.2017
Matilde Capuis was born on the first of January 1913 in Naples. When she was a little child, she already developed a strong affinity to music and attracted attention by her first attempts to compose. She studied violin, piano and organ in Florence and Venice. Between 1941 and 1946 she attended composition courses at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena. She was awarded various composition prizes such as the “Premio Quartetto Veneziano” (1948), the “Premio Circolo Universitario”, Bolzano (1948), the “Concorso Internazionale per Compositori”, Genova (1952) and the “Concorso International de Compositoras H. Rubinstein” Buenos Aires (1962).
Matilde Capuis composed works for orchestra and choir, such as a “Sinfonia in sol minore” and an oratorio for soloists, choir and orchestra, “Il Pianto della Madonna”, many songs and a lot of chamber music with a great preference for the human voice and string instruments. Her special preference for the violoncello brought her together with Ugo Scabia, cellist and professor from Turino with whom she should be connected for years by intense concert activities. In 1969, she was offered a professorship for composition and music theory at the Verdi Conservatory in Turino. There she taught up her emeritus status in 1983. In 2001 she was honoured in recognition of her musical merits of the Turin University “Università della Terza Età“ and the city of Turin appointed her to a honorary citizen. Her works are published by the publishing house Furore Verlag. On January 31, 2017 she died, 104 years old, in Turin.
