Opera, sacred music.
The earliest reference to Albertini’s activities in Warsaw dates from 12 April 1773, when King Stanisław August Poniatowski paid him a fee for a concert. From the middle of 1782 for about two years he was the king’s maître de chapelle, during which time his main duty was to direct concerts at both the Royal Castle and the Orangerie Theatre in the gardens of Łazienki Palace (both in Warsaw). On 17 September 1784 he conducted J.D. Holland’s opera Agatka at the court of Karol Radziwiłł in Nieśwież, and in the autumn of the same year he tried to promote an opera of his own in Vienna, but without much success. In 1785 he presented his opera Circe und Ulisses in Hamburg, and from about the middle of 1785 until the beginning of 1803 he was in Rome, where he composed and performed three operas. After this he returned to Warsaw. In his later years he gave singing lessons while living on a modest pension provided (in 1795) by Stanisław Poniatowski, the nephew of King Stanisław August Poniatowski.
