Giuseppe Torelli

Giuseppe Torelli (Verona, April 22, 1658 - Bologna, February 8, 1709) was an Italian violinist, pedagogue and composer. He was the brother of Felice Torelli, a noted painter, and is most remembered for his contributions to the development of the instrumental concerto, especially concerti grossi and the solo concerto, as well as compositions for strings and continuo, as well as for trumpets.

Regarded by some as one of the greatest Italian composers and violonists ever, Torelli was a pupil of Giacomo Antonio Perti in Bologna, Italy. On June 27, 1684, at the age of 26, he became a member of the Accademia Filarmonica as suonatore di violino. He directed the capella at the cathedral (San Petronio) of Bologna, 1686 - 1695. He was maestro di concerto to the court of Georg Friedrich II, Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach from 1698 to 1699 where he presented an oratorio (December 1699) before returning again to Bologna (1701) to become a violinist in the cappella musicale at San Petronio.

Talk:Symphony - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (898 words)
Torelli was indeed the composer of the first actual symphonies, although he made little distinction over sinfonia/concerti grossi/sonata.
For example, they would say that Vivaldi's concerti ripieno (a type of piece also written by Torelli, incidentally, and which I've mentioned in the article) are not symphonies, because they use the ritornello form of the concerto, rather than binary form or sonata form.
But in brief: no books I looked at considered Torelli to be a composer of symphonies - the symphony is really a Classical form by definition, so while Baroque composers might have written concerti or suites or whatever that resemble symphonies, they're not regarded as being part of the symphonic tradition.
