Gavino Gabriel (1881-1980) was an all-around artist that cultivated many interests throughout his life: music in the first place, but also popular traditions, literature, new technologies for the reproduction of sounds and music education. He was a fine intellectual, appreciated by Giuseppe Prezzolini and Gabriele D'Annunzio. He cooperated in the foundation of the Discoteca di Stato, of which he became the first director in 1932. Particularly noteworthy is his work regarding the enhancement of traditional Sardinian music, which he made known through lectures and concerts all over Europe. His most important work, La Jura, was staged for the first time in Cagliari in 1928.
