Francesco Maria Veracini (1690 - 1768)

Francesco Maria Veracini, born into a famous family of Italian musicians in 1690, and was originally taught by his uncle. He soon proved himself an incredibly gifted violin virtuoso, and it is said that when the great Tartini heard him play sat the age of 22, he decided to go back to study the violin, so as to match the brilliance of the bowing. He could have become one of the wealthiest musicians of his time, had he dedicated his life to the many court positions offered to him, but he possessed an insatiable desire to travel. As a composer his output was somewhat haphazard, and was not always well received. His considerable catalogue includes many concertos composed specifically to demonstrate his outstanding technique, Veracini believing other music was not capable of extending his skills. In his last years he did at last settle in Florence and served as the Master of the Choir at one of the major churches. He apparently performed as a virtuoso soloist right through to his death at the age of 78.
