Giuseppe Maria Jacchini (1663 – 1727) was an Italian
cellist and composer who received his musical training
as a choirboy in the San Petronio Basilica in Bologna.
There he studied composition with Giacomo Antonio Perti
and Domenico Gabrielli. Later Jacchini became a cellist
in the "cappella musicale" of the San Petronio
Basilica. He is possibly the "Giosefo del Violonzino"
referred to in the period from 1680 to 1688.
He composed mainly instrumental music with cello, which
replaced at his time more and more the viol as the bass
instrument. He dedicated his opus 4 to Bolognese Count
and composer Pirro Albergati, who had campaigned for
Jacchini's permanent position in the orchestra of the
cathedral of Bologna.
Jacchini became a member of the prestigious "Accademia
Filarmonica" on 16 December 1688. He also served as
conductor of the "Collegio dei Nobili" and the church
of S. Luigi.
His cello works helped to strengthen the position of
the cello as a solo instrument. As an excellent
companion he played frequently at the theater in the
city. His trumpet concertos prepared for celebrations
at the San Petronio Basilica are in the tradition of
the works of his teacher Perti, Giuseppe Torelli and
Although originally written for Trumpets & Orchestra, I
created this arrangement for Brass Ensemble (Bb Trumpet
or Flugelhorn, French Horn & F Tuba).
