Giuseppe Tartini

Tartini portrait

He was one of the greatest violinists of his age, and was also very popular as a pre-classical composer and original music theoretician. His style was influenced by the baroque master Arcangelo Corelli, and he is counted among rococo composers because of his frequent use of trills and all sorts of ornaments in his music.
