ANDREA BARCA. Presented as an elusive Italian musician, it would actually be a play on words: it corresponds to the Italianization of the name Andras Schiff, and therefore turns out to be a parody of the maestro.
Below, a joking “curriculum”, probably written by Schiff himself, on his Italian “namesake”; note that the same master resides in the Florentine countryside.
«Andrea Barca was a Florentine composer about whom little is known, despite the diligent commitment of modern musicologists. He was born between 1730 and 1735 in Marignolle, near Florence, of peasant parents. He had a close proximity to Mozart in the concert of April 2, 1770, in the villa of Poggio Imperiale in Florence, when he collaborated as a page turner. After that concert he decided to dedicate his life to the performance of Mozart’s piano works; his enthusiasm for this music also brought him to Salzburg, where his efforts were received with alternating evaluations by the local press; soon therefore he returned to Tuscany. Among his compositions, his main work is “La ribollita bruciata”, a playful drama in two acts, which can be considered the culmination of the Tuscan musical production of the time. ”
