Born the year before Mozart, Viotti (1755-1824) was the last great representative of the Italian tradition of violin playing that dated back to Corelli. In his career as violinist, composer, teacher and impresario he established the modern French school, making him 'arguably the most influential violinist who ever lived'. This biography presents all that is known of Viotti's life, from obscure origins in Turin to his opera house in Paris, and includes translations of several significant archival documents.
