A Musical Interlude: Francesco Gasparini

Francesco Gasparini (Camaiore, Italy, 19th March 1661 – Rome, Italy, 22 March 1727)

Italian Baroque composer, Francesco Gasparini, was born on this day. An inspiration to Bach, Gasparini was famed in his native land and enjoyed huge success as both a composer and tutor too.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful example of his work; just right to start the steady road to the weekend!
