Amico : the life of Giovanni Battista Viotti / Warwick Lister (Oxford University Press, 2009)

The first full-length biography in English of Giovanni Battista Viotti (1755-1824), one of the great violinist-composers in the history of music, and arguably the most influential violinist who ever lived.

“Amico is a thorough and entertaining life-and-times”–Strad

“A substantial and beautifully produced monograph”–Early Music

“This is a labor of love. Not only does it offer invaluable information about Viotti – one of music’s unsung heroes – it allows us to follow his footsteps and thus experience a part of European history.”–András Schiff

“Will hopefully serve as [a] key tool in opening new paths of inquiry in performance practice and music history in general”–Notes
