Famous Violinists – 4

Giuseppe Tartini

Tartini was born in 1692 in Italy. He started his career in music after his parents wanted him to become a friar. At that time at the monastery they used to teach some music. After his father death he married Elisabetta Premazone, a lady from the lower class, hated by his family.

Giuseppe was not lucky at all because soon enough he found out that his wife was the mistress of the Cardinal Giorgio Cornaro, who later on accused the musician of so many bad things that he had to escape.

He moved to the monastery St. Francis of Assisi and began study the violin. He was improving very quick and he decided to move to Ancona. Soon he was considered one of the best violinist in Europe and a great rival for all the other musicians. He died in 1770.

Tartini s-a nascut in anul 1692. Si-a inceput cariera in muzica dupa ce parintii sai si-au dorit ca acesta sa devina calugar. La acea vreme la manastiri se preda putina muzica. Dupa moartea tatalui sau, acesta se casatoreste cu Elisabetta Premazone, o doamna din clasa de jos, urata de catre familia lui.

Giuseppe nu a fost prea norocos intrucat destul de curand afla ca sotia sa este amanta Cardinalului Girogio Carnaro, care mai tarziu il va acuza pe muzician de multe fapre rele punandu-l in postura de a fugi.

S-a mutat la manastirea St.Francis de Assisi si a inceput sa studieze vioara. Isi imbunatatea tehnica foarte repede si a decis sa se mute la Ancona. In scurt timp a ajuns sa fie coniderat unul dintre cei mai buni violonisti ai Europei si un rival de temut pentru ceilalti muzicieni. A murit in anul 1770.
