Bernardo Pasquini

Bernardo Pasquini (7 December 1637 – 22 November 1710) was an Italian composer of opera and church music.

He was born at Massa in Val di Nievole (Tuscany). He was a pupil of Antonio Cesti and Loreto Vittori. He came to Rome while still young and entered the service of Prince Borghese; later he became organist of the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. He enjoyed the protection of Queen Christina of Sweden, in whose honour an opera of his, Dov'è amore è pieta, was produced in 1679.

During Alessandro Scarlatti's second stay in Rome (1703–1708), Pasquini and Arcangelo Corelli were frequently associated with Scarlatti in musical performances, especially in connection with the Academy of Arcadia, of which all three were members. Pasquini died at Rome, and was buried in the church of San Lorenzo in Lucina.

He is also remembered as a vigorous composer for the harpsichord; one of his harpsichord pieces was transcribed for orchestra by Ottorino Respighi for his suite Gli Uccelli.
