Tartini Project

  1. 1. Giuseppe Tartini
  2. 2. <ul><li>Tartini was born in Piran (April 8, 1692 ). </li></ul><ul><li>He is an Italian composer and violinist. After abandoning plans for a monastic career he studied in Assisi. </li></ul>Life
  3. 3. <ul><li>He later spent time in Venice and Padua, where he settled in 1721 as principal violinist at the basilica of S Antonio. He worked there until 1765 except for a period in Prague (1723-6). </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Besides performing with success, he founded in 1727-8 a ‘school’ of violin instruction; his many pupils included J. G. Graun, Nardini and Naumann. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Tartini was one of the foremost Italian instrumental composers, writing over 400 works: these include violin concertos and sonatas (many with virtuoso solo parts), trio sonatas and sonatas for string ensemble. </li></ul>Work
  6. 6. <ul><li>Most have three movements, ordered slow-fast-fast (sonatas) or fast-slow-fast (concertos). His later works in particular approach Classical structures and display galant features, including regular four-bar melodic phrases. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Elaborate cadence formulae are especially characteristic. He also composed some sacred music. Noteworthy among his writings are a work on violin playing and ornamentation, Traité des agréments de la musique - </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>published only in1771 but thought to have been written earlier (L. Mozart, in 1756, is thought to have borrowed from it, but it may be the other way round) - and two treatises on the acoustical foundations of harmony (1754, 1767), in which his discovery of the Difference tone phenomenon is discussed. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Today, Tartini's most famous work is the &quot;Devil's Trill Sonata&quot;, a solo violin sonata that requires a number of technically demanding double stop trills and is difficult even by modern standards. </li></ul>
