Guiseppe Tartini, violinist and composer, was born on April 8, 1692, in Pirano, Istria (west of Venice) and died on February 26, 1770 in Padua, Italy (east of Venice). Like Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741), another Italian violinist/composer of the Baroque Period (1600-1750), he studied to be a priest; however, his marriage in 1710 ended that career.
In addition to composing (entirely for the violin, with the exception of one flute concerto), he also wrote books on music theory and violin performance, including the interpretation of ornamentation (trills, mordents, etc.).
This Concertino (a small concerto) is made up of movements from two of his violin sonatas.
