Jommelli, Niccolo
b Aversa, 10 Sept 1714; d Naples, 25 Aug 1774

Contributor: James Sanderson

Italian composer. He was important among those who initiated the mid-18th-century modifications to singer-dominated Italian opera. His greatest achievements represent a combination of German complexity, French decorative elements and Italian brio, welded together by an extraordinary gift for dramatic effectiveness. *
