about

Augusto Migliavacca was born blind in 1838. At the age of seven he was directed towards the study of the violin, and he found in it a true source of life, perfectioning himself as far as reaching an exceptional virtuosity. Because of his family’s povertyhe soon started working as a vagabond soloist.

Possessed of a reasonably good singing voice, Miglavacca began to accompany the sound of the violin with his voice. For 15 years he was accompanied by the violinist Giuseppe Ferrari and violincellist Bartolomeo Marchesi, going around roads, squares and courtyards in Parma.

No other musician allowed so many encores in his life at such a low price, perhaps for two or three cents thrown onto the beggar’s plate. One day when he broke his instrument, Pellegrino Molossi remedied the incident by launching a public subscription on the pages of the 'Gazzetta di Parma'. Another time, half of the city ran into the square to see the historical challenge between the trio Migliavacca and the trio of a certain Zinzani: the winning musical group would have had the right to survive in the city; well, the parmesans were almost all in favour of Migliavacca and company.

A composer gifted with remarkable inspiration, he wrote and published his “Celebre Mazurka variata” .
