(1663 - 1745)

A violinist and composer, son of Giovanni Battista Vitali, a string-player and singer at Bologna and then in the service of the Este family in Modena, Tomaso Antonio Vitali became leader of the Este orchestra, with which he seems to have maintained a connection from 1675 until 1742. He left trio sonatas in the style of Corelli, but it is now thought that the Chaconne attributed to him, a well known part of violin repertoire in various guises, was not his work.
