Giuseppe Torelli (22 April 1658 – 8 February 1709) was an Italian violist, violinist, teacher, and composer of the late Baroque era. Torelli is most remembered for contributing to the development of the instrumental concerto., especially concerti grossi and the solo concerto, for strings and continuo, as well as being the most prolific Baroque composer for trumpets.

  1. I didn’t know that “Torelli is most remembered for contributing to the development of the instrumental concerto… as well as being the most prolific Baroque composer for trumpets.” He could trumpet those accomplishments if he were still alive.
