(d 1783 )

A cellist in the Spanish Chapel Royal between 1734 and 1783, Domenico Porretti enjoyed a considerable reputation as a player and was much admired by the famous singer Farinelli. He was the father of Joaquina, Boccherini’s second wife.

Cello Music

Porretti seems to have written 24 cello concertos and a work for four cellos mentioned by Padre Antonio Soler, the whereabouts of all of which are unknown. One cello sonata has recently been found among the collection of scores at the castle of Schönborn-Wiesentheid in Germany.
