"[Viotti] was the most influential violinist between Tartini and Paganini and the last great representative of the Italian tradition stemming from Corelli. He is considered the founder of the ‘modern’ (19th-century) French school of violin playing, and his compositions, among the finest examples of Classical violin music, exerted a strong influence on 19th-century violin style... Only the 29 violin concertos fully reflect Viotti’s musical imagination, his power as a performer and his development as a composer. These are his most important works, both musically and historically." Chappell White in Grove online. Item #22039
