Fenaroli, a composer from the Haydn generation, studied with the great master Durante in Naples. Fenaroli rose through the ranks of teachers to became one of the co-directors of the combined conservatories of Naples in the early nineteenth century. Printed editions of his partimenti became common beginning in the early 1800s, and they remained continuously available from many publishers until the twentieth century. Fenaroli's partimenti were praised by Giuseppe Verdi, studied by the eight-year-old Luciano Berio, and assigned by Nadia Boulanger to Walter Piston, future American author of a widely read textbook on harmony.
