    Default Marco Uccellini (1603 or 1610 till 1680)

    Marco Uccellini (1603 or 1610 - December 1680), Italian baroque violinist and composer, was born into a noble and ecclesiastical family at Forlimpopoli. Forli in Italy. He may have studied at the seminary at Assisi in the early 1630s and begun his musical education there under the director, violinist Giovanni Battista Buonamente.

    Uccellini was Master of Music at the Este Court in Modena from 1641 - 1662, and Leader at the cathedral there from 1647 till 1665.
    When a new duke acceded, Uccellini lost his position but was soon re-employed, this time as Master of Music at the Farnese Court in Parma until his death in 1680.

    Marco Uccellini was highly valued, and well paid for the time; he is an important figure in the development of violin technique, and his work is thought to have influenced Schmelzer, Biber and Walther.

    To quote Wiki:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marco_Uccellini
    - 'His sonatas for violin and continuo contributed to the development of an idiomatic style of writing for the violin (including virtuosic runs, leaps and forays into high positions).'

    There's a collection of his violin sonatas on YouTube. I'm listening now, and they are 'to-die-for' in their lyrical and sensitive beauty.
