Francesco Biscogli, concerto

 

 

 

 

 

**********************************************

 

Francesco Biscogli (ca. 1700 – ca. 1750) was an Italian composer.

Biographical information on the composer is missing. Only a single known work from around 1740 exists: a triple concerto for trumpet, oboe, bassoon, two violins, and basso continuo in D major, which has been attributed to Biscogli (posted here).

It is a charming and uplifting work. I first encountered in it in high school on an LP of my parents on which it was paired with a famous Vivaldi concerto. I listened to the Biscogli piece over and over again.
