The Venetian composer Benedetto Marcello (1686-1739) was preeminently important in reshaping musical thought and practice to suit values revived from classical antiquity. His music was widely known and respected throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This is the first systematic inventory of the 700 musical works attributed to him. The catalog also lists the works of the composer's brother Alessandro (1668-1747) and other information about the literary and musical achievements of the Marcello family. Including an extended commentary on the composers and their music, as well as numerous appendices and indices, this reference provides information of interest to performers, editors, and students pursuing style-critical and source-critical studies.
