Alfredo Casella (1883 – 1947) was an Italian composer, one of the best­ known Italian piano virtuoso of his generation and a conductor. His editions of J.S. Bach and L. Van Beethoven's piano works, alongside with many others, proved extremely influential on the musical taste and performance style of Italian players in the following generations. From 1927 to 1929 he had also an important experience over seas as a principal conductor of the Boston Pops. He composed the set of 11 KinderStücke on 1920, one year before getting married. Among his students we can find Nino Rota (1911 – 1979). During his long career Rota was an extraordinarily prolific composer, especially of music for the cinema. He wrote more than 150 scores for Italian and international productions from the 1930s until his death in 1979, among which the first two films of Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather trilogy. The “7 pieces for children” written between 1971 and 1972 represent a young pianist traveling in a imaginary world. The Rondo on Argentine Children's Folk Tunes by Alberto Ginastera (1916 – 1983) is a
charming and mischievous piece that has a lot of humor and lightness to it, a trait not often found in Ginastera’s music. While his strong stylistic trademarks can still be found in this piece, the Rondo is far removed from the relentless and often taxing energy of his fast toccata­-like pieces Ginastera used four children tunes in this Rondo: Sobre el puente de Avignon, Palomita ingrata, Yo no soy buenamoza and a snippet of En coche va una niña. The Canadian composer Patrick Cardy (1953 – 2005) worked on his set of 5 Bagatelles “Quips and Cranks” in 2004. The first and fifth bagatelles are named after two toy dogs that his sons used to play with. The musical texture of the second bagatelle ­ staccato inner voices against more legato outer voices ­ suggested the title of Dewdrop, while the languid swing of the fourth bagatelle brought to mind the image of A Lazy Afternoon. Finally, the third bagatelle, Lullaby (for Kevin), is dedicated to the memory of his cousin who died young.
Dogs, are considered like kids for some people. The still living Italian composer Giancarlo Facchinetti, born in Brescia in 1936, dedicated his Suite di Danze composed in 2000 to his dogs Isotta and Pluff. Micro­Suite “Aspettando Maddalena” is a eries of short pieces, also written in the same year, that the composer wrote in several occasions always while waiting for Maddalena, a little student of his that was very often late to her lessons.
