Antonio Joseph Bazzini (1818 – 1897), Italian violinist, composer and teacher; bow in hand, violin tucked under left arm. One of the finest concert violinists of the 19th century, he contributed to a portion of the Messa per Rossini, a Requiem Mass composed to commemorate the first anniversary of Gioachino Rossini's death. As a composer his most enduring work is his chamber music which has earned him a central place in the Italian instrumental renaissance of the 19th century.
