Corbett : Aria con variatione : Violoncello
Composer: William Corbett (1675 - 1748)
Corbett was associated with English theatre orchestras throughout his career, but spent the middle years settled in Rome. His return from abroad with a collection of instruments and music, as expensive as it was extensive, and reputedly well beyond his means, prompted speculation, retailed by Sir John Hawkins (in the absence of H.M.R.C. capital statements), that he had been employed covertly by the English government and that "his business at Rome was to watch the motions of the Pretender".
This air, although not a concerto itself, was included in Corbett's Universal Bizzaries, Op. 8, described as a collection of thirty-five concerto's.
