"Campagnoli scored successes as a virtuoso on the violin... His educational activity played an important role in his life... He was less lucky as a composer... In general, his compositions display a simplicity of form and a characteristic penchant for melodies with simple cantabile themes." Giacomo Fornari in MGG 2. Item #25673
