(1746 - 1825)

Seemingly active at first in Naples, Cambini settled in Paris in 1770, performing as a violinist and publishing a stream of instrumental compositions that found a ready public (although some criticised the quantity of music he produced). He was able to adapt to the changes brought about by the requirements of the French Revolution, although was less successful in its aftermath.

Chamber Music

Cambini wrote 110 quintets, 149 string quartets, and a varied quantity of other works now generally neglected in spite of their contemporary popularity.
