An Italian theorist, music historian, teacher, and organist, Gervasoni’s "Nuova teoria di musica (Parma, 1812), provides an interesting picture of the musical scene in Italy during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, as well as a useful biographical dictionary of musicians, mostly Italian, of the same period, including less well-known figures and women musicians (especially singers)." Milton Sutter, revised by Patrizia Radicchi in Grove Music Online.
