schema:description""James Radomski gathers, for the first time, all pertinent information surrounding Garcia and sets vividly the operatic scene of the period. The musician's life is chronicled from his earliest years in Seville until his death in Paris in 1832. With substantial reference to previously undiscovered reviews and letters, this biography also includes discussions of Garcia's compositions and teaching through musical examples and illustrations."--Jacket."@en
schema:description"Garcia's Spanish compositions, in particular, had an impact on French Romantics such as George Sand and Victor Hugo, and ultimately influenced the music of Bizet's Carmen. As a singing teacher, Garcia was beyond comparison. Foremost among his many successful pupils were the tenor, Adolphe Nouritt, and his three children, Maria Malibran, Pauline Viardot-Garcia, and Manuel Patricio Garcia.""@en

As one of the first intercontinental superstars, Garcia directed the initial professional Italian opera performances in New York City in 1825 and in Mexico City in 1827. Apart from his extraordinary singing career, Garcia was also an important composer. His early operettas were extremely popular in Madrid, his II califfo di Bagdad achieved success in Naples and Paris, and his La mort du Tasse was premiered at the Paris Opera."
