Giovanni Battista Bononcini (18 July 1670 - 9 July 1747) was an Italian Baroque composer and cellist, one of a family of musicians. His father, Giovanni Maria Bononcini, was a violinist and composer. The present edition is based on the Divertimenti da camera per violino o llauto published in London in 1722. They consist of consecutively numbered movements which form a cycle although it is not expressly described as such. The work derives from the composers most brilliant period when he was playing an important part in Londons musical life, alongside Handel, whose fame he equalled. The rivalry of the two masters acquired an almost political background in the later disputes of the partisans on both sides who added fuel to the stylistic quarrels in quite a dramatic fashion. 7 page score with parts.
