Owing to a rather eclectic compositional style, Carlo Jachino enjoyed inconsistent success as a composer, though his opera Giocondo e il suo re was performed frequently in Italy during the 1920s. He worked as a teacher throughout his career and at the time he signed this sketch served as an instructor in Parma. Jachino was also the father of famed Italian film actress Silvana Jachino.ALS-14439$175
