Sacchini was a leading figure in late 18th century opera. "In 1770 Burney considered him one of the four greatest composers of Italy, along with Jommelli, Galuppi and Piccinni... A critic of the next generation, Giuseppe Carpani, hailed Sacchini as the world's greatest melodist." David DiChiera and Joyce Johnson Robinson in Grove Music Online. Item #22773
