Mingghino dal violoncello, as Domenico Gabrielli was known to contemporaries in Bologna, was a pupil of the composer Legrenzi in Venice and in his native Bologna a pupil of the cellist Franceschini at the basilica of S. Petronio, where he was employed as cellist from 1680, a position he held intermittently until his death in 1690. As a composer he wrote a dozen operas and a variety of vocal music, sacred and secular. His instrumental music includes a collection of Balletti, gighe, correnti, allenmande e sarabande, published in 1684 as Opus 1, and notable additions to the repertoire of the solo trumpet, works in which his own instrument, the cello, often assumes importance.
