"[An] Italian violinist and composer... Polledro's playing was praised for its technical facility, especially in double stops and jumps across the fingerboard. His compositions were considered of only moderate interest even by his contemporaries; but they are elegant and exemplify the technical advances leading from Pugnani to Paganini." Boris Schwarz and Emanuele Senici in Grove Music Online. He was "acclaimed in Germany as the best violinist since Viotti. In 1812 he performed with Beethoven in Karlsbad. In 1814 he became leader of the Dresden court orchestra, with a salary equal to that of Weber, the conductor." Oxford Music Online.

The strong percussion section is notable. "Tamburo" most probably stands for "bass drum"; the part doubles that of Piatti. Item #25839
