Cesana arranged and orchestrated music for network radio, the screen and the Radio City Music Hall in New York, and conducted a noted 1941 Town Hall concert of his own works. Noted Brazilian music critic José Domingos Raffaelli feels the composer should be associated with lighter forms of music, writing " my opinion easy listening music is the kind of music played by the string orchestras of Mantovani, David Rose, Peter Yorke, and others." Cesana began his study of the piano in 1909. One fact beyond dispute is that the man liked to learn; he had many teachers and became adept at organ, orchestration, and harmony. He turned out compositions and arrangements for radio stations and the Hollywood film studios and began premiering his original works in the early '40s at prestigious venues such as New York City's Town Hall., Cesana was contracted by Columbia alongside company such as Ray Conniff. ---notes from biography by Eugene Chadbourne.
