Antonio Lotti


Oboe concerto in G minor Volume 1

Antonio Lotti (1667–1740), born in Venice, is best known today for his church music and vocal chamber music, and to a lesser extent his numerous operas. For most of his career he served the City’s ducal church of San Marco: first as a singer, then as an organist and finally, in 1736, as its musical director. Over several decades he was the most prominent teacher of music in Venice. He had a brief experience of life abroad during 1717–1719 when he led a company of mostly Venetian musicians at the Saxon-Polish court in Dresden.
