Giuseppe Torelli Program Notes and Sheet Music

Giuseppe Torelli was an Italian composer of the Baroque period. He is best known for his contributions to the development of the concerto grosso, a type of musical composition in which a small group of solo instruments (the concertino) is contrasted with a larger group of instruments (the ripieno). Torelli wrote over 100 concertos, including several for trumpet, which were very popular in his day. He also wrote sonatas, sinfonias, and other pieces of instrumental music.

Torelli's concertos are some of the most beautiful and exciting music of the Baroque period. They are a joy to listen to and a challenge to perform. The trumpet concerto is a particularly virtuosic work that showcases the trumpet's unique sound.
