ed. Adriano Cirillo
Gaetano Andreozzi (1755–1826) studied with his maternal uncle Niccolò Jomelli at the Conservatorio di Santa Maria di Loreto in Naples giving him the nickname ‘Jomellino’.
This practical edition of the three quintets for flute and strings is based on the Venice edition of 1793 which is in the Biblioteca Musicale Opera Pia G. Greggiati at Ostiglia (Mantua)1, (edition Musiche C.478, five individual parts, unbound).
The frontispiece reads: “tre quintetti | Per Due Violini, Viola, Flauto, e Violoncello | Composti dal Signor | gaetano andreozzi | Maestro di Cappella Napolettano | Dedicati | A Sua Eccellenza il Signor Marchese | luigi zampieri | Senatore di Bologna, e Capitano del Palazzo etc. etc. | venezia | Appresso Antonio Zatta, e Figli.” The five parts are marked Violino I, Violino II, Viola, Oboe, and Violoncello, suggesting that the flute part can also be played by an oboe.
