Pietro Antonio Locatelli

September 3, 1695 - March 30, 1764
born in Bergamo, Italy, composed during the Baroque period
Pietro Antonio Locatelli (1695-1764) was an important Italian composer and violinist of the early 18th century. The contrasting influences of Corelli and Vivaldi can be found in his music, which was primarily composed for strings, though on occasion he wrote for wind instruments. Yet because he was a virtuoso of the violin, his 12 concertos and 24 caprices for that instrument receive particular attention, especially from students. Locatelli spent the years after 1729 in Amsterdam, involved in composing, teaching, and publishing music. His chief innovation was the use of written cadenzas in his concertos, to replace the traditional improvised solos. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

Who else heard the violas?
Thank you, Pandora! Great music! I play you in my room of the Public Library, and I attract more readers than the other rooms. ===>Bill
Hey Thomas Swift, I am very fond of Wolfgang. But I am also very fond of these early Italian composers. It is my understandin g he (Mozart) and Bach learned much from these Italian composers.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the the best day of your life. However if you do not post this comment on at least 3 different songs you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when if done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cuz it actually works

Fantastic!He a r d about Locatelli in a novel and found him here. Now I am a big fan!

There is nothing better than Baroque music. Thank you Pandora for tuning me into Locatelli.
sjnaquin
also would like to thank Pandora, a fan of Vivaldi, glad to have found Locatelli!

Locatelli, a little sunshine between rain clouds, and....thee? Who art thou, oh fellow lover of Locatelli?
I love this composer. Thank you, Pandora for exposing me to a wider range of music.
Thank goodness for Pandora. I have been a Mozart snob for many years. You know--no one is better than Wolgang, and all that. But thanks to Pandora, I now know that I am a total Locatelli-nu t . Every time I go to mark a song with a "thumbs up", assuming it to be Mozart, 90% of the time it turns out to be a Locatelli tune! I just purchased The Complete Flute Sonatas due to my new-found appreciation . What a great education. And as they say: "Don't fix it if it ain't Baroque!"
First time I hear this composer. Love it. I wish you had Zelenka!

Baroque music lightens the heart and brings music to the lips.
Amazing!
first I've heard....... e n j o y a b l e . . . . . . . . h e l p s clear the clutter from my mind!
