    Default Giovanni Battista Sammartini

    Another important pre classical/early classical symphonist. I recently bought a CD of his. His works have some contrapuntal baroque textures that Stamitz lacks. I think he was even earlier than Stamitz. Not a bad composer from what I can tell, worth seeing about in my opinion, especially since he was one of the earliest true symphonists.

    This is the only recording of his music that I have; it features him and his brother Giuseppe.
