Leonardo Vinci

1690 - 27 May 1730
A composer whose music turned the heads of Vivaldi and Handel, he became an overnight success in comic opera at age 29 and died from poison at the height of his fame. Was it a jilted lover or a jealous rival?
The Leonardo Vinci website is a collaborative project featuring the work of a number of international researchers and performers. Over time we hope to add to the information available on this fascinating composer and invite you to contribute to the available editions, biographies, articles and discussions.
This site has been launched to offer insight into the music of the Neapolitan composer Leonardo Vinci - a composer much fêted in his day and music still standing today as excellent examples of the period. You can preview, audition and purchase music, much of which is not available in any other place.

Select the music you'd like to view and suggest music you would like to see available on the site.

We have access to some of the greatest collections of manuscripts in the world, both autograph copies of whole operas and excellent contemporary collections of arias and cantatas by a vast range of composers. Take advantage of this and of the music and articles available.

If you have a transcription or an article you'd like to add to the collection, please sign-up and add your work.
