0 Reviews
Drawing on a wealth of correspondence, this book examines the relationship between the great Italian violinist and composer Giovanni Battista Viotti (1755-1824) and the Chinnery Family with whom he became deeply involved. Following his meeting with Margaret and William Chinnery in 1793, Viotti moved into their home and became a second father to their children, forming a remarkably successful menage a trois.
Providing fresh insights into Viotti's life and career, the book illuminates the context in which he lived and worked, including new information on the reception of Viotti's concertos in London and the solo performances he gave while in England.
