Drigo Riccardo

Riccardo Drigo was an Italian composer of ballet music and Italian opera, a theatrical conductor, and a pianist. Drigo is equally noted for his original full-length compositions for the ballet as well as his large catalog of supplemental music written ad hoc for insertion into already-existing works. Drigo is also noted for his adaptations of already-existing scores, such as his 1895 edition of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's score for Swan Lake.
