Francesco Geminiani

Francesco Saverio Geminiani (baptised 5 December 1687 – 17 September 1762) was an Italian violinist, composer, and music theorist. BBC Radio 3 has described him as "now largely forgotten, but in his time considered almost a musical god, deemed to be the equal of Handel and Corelli."
