A student of G. A. Fioroni, maestro di cappella of Milan Cathedral, and G. B. Martini, Gasparini was appointed maestro di cappella of Turin Cathedral in 1760. In 1767 he set Mitridate, a libretto set by Mozart for Milan three years later. According to Leopold Mozart`s letter of 2 January 1771, the singers had wanted to substitute some of Gasparini`s numbers for Mozart`s; in the event, the tenor Guglielmo d`Ettore performed the older composer`s `Vado incontro` (Act 3), as a result of which the aria was later incorrectly attributed to Mozart. Nevertheless, relations between the Mozarts and Gasparini, whom they met later in January 1771, were good. Possibly as late as 1783, Leopold Mozart copied out Gasparini`s Adoramus te.
