FRANCESCO ONOFRIO MANFREDINI  

(1684 - 1762)

Born in Pistoia, where his father was cathedral and town trombonist, Francesco Manfredini studied there and, with Torelli and Perti, in Bologna. He was appointed first violinist at the Chiesa dello Spirito Santo in Ferrara but also played in the re-established orchestra of San Petronio in Bologna. He is also mentioned as a musician of Prince Antoine I of Monaco. In 1724 he returned to Pistoia, where he became maestro di cappella at the cathedral, a position that later brought conflicts with his employers. He managed, however, to retain his place until his death.

Vocal and Instrumental Music

Manfredini’s principal compositions reflect his training with Torelli in Bologna. They include sets of concerti grossi, in chamber and church form, and trio sonatas. His oratorios include S Filippo Neri trionfante and Tommaso Moro.
