Giuseppe Torelli was born in Verona, Italy in 1658. He was a famous violinist, teacher, and composer. His career allowed travels to Germany and Vienna, but centered in Bologna, Italy, where he was a violinist and violist in the Accademia Filarmonica and later, worked as a musician at the Basilica San Petronio. Torelli was an especially important figure in the development of the instrumental concerto, with particular emphasis on both the solo concerto and concerto grosso forms.
The Sinfonia in D Major (G21) is a piece originally scored for one or two trumpets, first and second solo violins, first and second ripieno violins, solo viola, ripieno viola, violoncello ripieno, violoncello continuo, violone ripieno, and organo.
The exact date of the composition is not known, but the work is presumed to have been completed in the latter period. This edition is based on the autograph manuscript located in the musical archives at the Basilica San Petronio in Bologna, Italy.
