Francesco Antonio Bonporti

Antonio Bonporti. Francesco Antonio Bonporti (11 June 1672 – 19 December 1749) was an Italian priest and amateur composer.

Born in Trento, he was admitted in 1691 to the ''Collegium Germanicum'' in Rome, where he studied theology. While in Rome, he also studied composition under the guidance of Giuseppe Ottavio Pitoni and, although it is not confirmed, violin with Arcangelo Corelli.

Moving back in his native Trento, he was ordained a priest in 1695.

Bonporti's musical work consists of twelve ''opera'', published between 1696 and 1736. He influenced Johann Sebastian Bach in the development of the invention, and in fact several of his works were mistakenly included in a set of Bach's inventions. In reality, Bach had transcribed for harpsichord four violin pieces from Bonporti's op. X (1712).

In 1740 he moved to Padua, where he lived until his death in 1749. Provided by Wikipedia
