Known as the Scirolino or the Sciroletto, after his teacher Gregorio Sciroli, Aprile debuted in Jomelli`s Ifigenia in Aulide at the Teatro di San Carlo, Naples, on 18 December 1753. His successful career took him throughout Europe; roles were written expressly for him by Traetta, Anfossi, Sacchini and Jommelli; he was particularly well-known for his prolonged trills and in a letter of 26 January 1770 (letter 158) Mozart described his voice as `beautiful and regular`. Aprile also taught; his students included Cimarosa, Michael Kelly and Catherine, Lady Hamilton.
