The Italian musician was the leader of Handel's orchestra in London for 17 years. He published numerous sonatas for flute or violin. The Ledenburg Collection in Osnabrück was discovered only in 2015. It contains primarily viol music from the time around 1750. The most important works in the collection are the twelve Fantasias for Viola da Gamba Solo by Georg Philipp Telemann, which were long thought to have been lost.
