About Giovanni Alberto Ristori

  • Giovanni Alberto Ristori (1692 - 7 February 1753) was an Italian opera composer and conductor. He is thought to have been born in Bologna, and was the son of Tommaso Ristori, the leader of an opera troupe belonging to the King of Poland and Elector of Saxony August II the Strong (based in Dresden).
