Biographical notes:

Italian violinist and composer Giovanni Viotti is best known for his Violin Concerto No. 22 in A minor. Viotti spent much of his life after 1782 in Paris and London. He fled the French revolution in 1792, but was unwelcome in England as a suspected Jacobite between 1798-1801, after which he returned to London and remained there except for the years 1818-1822 in Paris. An early teacher and colleague in Italy was Gaetano Pugnani. His friends and patrons in London were the Chinnery family.
