An Italian composer and instrumentalist from the early Baroque era, he was a late member of the Venetian School of music, and had a role in the transformation of the instrumental canzona into the sonata.  The music is inventive and technically challenging, with strictly worked polyphonic sections alternating with dramatic recitatives over basso continuo.
