Gaetano Pugnani Birthday

Italian violinist and composer Gaetano Pugnani was born on this day in 1731.

He is remembered in history, as violin virtuoso Fritz Kreisler borrowed his name to publish a number of show pieces, including ‘Praeludium and Allegro’ and ‘Tempo di Minuetto’ – only later revealing the works to be his own.
