In the sonata for violin there is a very surprising section. It's sort of a gliss away from where you'd think you'd be going.

I bought this album years ago when it was released when Manze was in top form. I still love it today. There are many unknown Baroque composers who have languished in the shadows of the very famous. Too bad! We need an all - Baroque station on Pandora. Also, it was very common to 'steal'. It still goes on today :-)

Mealli! Must have more. Pandora, have you been keeping secrets? Some one must have a new or rejuvenated lover to be so inspired.

Regardless scrypt if you are 'dissin' someone on here in your defense of Meali - and he's a wonderful composer - there IS quite clearly said jazzy score. It's amazing in it's unexpectedne s s and is about .05 or so before the end of the piece.

Apparently Mssr. G. Tartini rather freely appropriated some significant passages of this for his "Devil's Trill", written, Tartini said, after a "dream" in 1713 - 43 years after Mealli's death in 1670.

At least something survives. Only 40? He was just getting started. Makes me wonder about the young ones called away so soon...

I looked him up on Wikipedia, and it appears that little is known in general, and that little of his music survives. I am so sorry to hear that there will not be more to discover!

Nice Music, and inspired playing.

Incredible. I've never heard of him before, but his Sonata for Violin and Continuo had me practically in tears it was so beautiful. I'd pay good money to see an orchestra do some of his stuff live.

Remarkable music, certainly holds its own against the better known composers and music. A shame so little is known (at least by Pandora) about Mealli and his music....

I just heard a violin sonata on Pandora= from the album in the picture. It was amazing-pull e d me away from whatever i was doing just to listen. Id never heard of him before. he was on my Vivaldi station so i'm guessing around that time, only it was so spirited and wild I thought it must be more modern. so then I find out he's way old, and was even more impressed. Great stuff.

To Suzanne.gaut h i e r 6 - Thanks for looking up this information about Giovanni Mealli (or maybe he was Antonio Pandolfi Meall or Giovanni Antonio Pandolf). If Pandora is right, he only lived 40 years. But if what they play on Pandora is indicative of all his work, he must have been brilliant.

He is a new composer for me as well.

I found this on Classical Composers Database.

He signed himself Antonio Pandolfi Mealli on his earlier compositions , and later as Giovanni Antonio Pandolf. Nothing was publiushed in his lifetime, with the exception of the two collections of sonatas (Opus 3 and Opus 4), published in 1660 while he was living in Innsbruck.

Pandolfi Mealli was a violinist and clergyman. He is first mentioned as “Johann

It's strange that so little is known about this composer, yet his work is highly regarded.
