Fictional Italian composer from the "What's My Melodic Line?" comedy skit on the album Report from Hoople: P.D.Q. Bach on the Air, released on Vanguard Records in 1967.

Staged as a radio quiz show, listeners are asked to identify a piece by him. He composed a Two Part Invention and a Three Part Invention.

He was married twice, both times to women named Vera. Spumoni dedicated one of his pieces to his first wife, which led to its being referred to as "La Primavera." Get it? Hanh?!

Spumoni is an Italian ice cream.
