About Giuseppe Tartini
Giuseppe Tartini was born in 1692 in Pirano, Istria (now Piran, Slovenia). After fleeing arrest for a secret illicit marriage, Tartini fled to a monestary in Assisi. There he developed a passion for the violin and gained recognition. He was later appointed principal violinist at the Church of San Antonio, became director of the orchestra of the chancellor of Bohemia in Prague, and founded a school of violin playing and composition in Padua, Italy. Tartini’s violin skills were exceptional in technicality and poetic qualities. His bowing technique became a model for modern violinists. He wrote more than 100 violin pieces including the Trillo del Diavolo. He also discovered the ‘Tartini tone’ and devised a theory of harmony which he canonized in three theoretical tomes. He died in 1770 at the age of 77.
