Submit information about the music of Giuseppe Sammartini


Brother of Giovanni Sammartini.

A native of Milan, he moved to London together with his brother Giovanni Battista Sammartini. He had started playing the oboe in Milan and in London took up the post of oboist in the Opera orchestra in 1727. He later left the Opera and was patronised by Frederick, Prince of Wales and his wife, Princess Augusta of Saxe-Gotha. He served them as Musical Director of the Chamber Concerts and was a member of their household.

Sammartini’s compositions included sonatas for flute and violin, sonatas for 2 flutes with thoroughbass, 12 sonatas for violin (dedicated to the Princess of Wales), 6 concertos for violin, concerto grossos, harpsichord concertos, 6 solo pieces for the German flute and 6 sonatas for 2 German flutes and violins. He also composed a number of lively pieces for cello, such as Mouvement d’une sérénade, and one opera, The Judgment of Paris, which premiered in Cliveden ca. 1740.

One of his best known compositions is the Concerto in F for soprano recorder, strings and continuo.
