Tomaso Antonio Vitali (1663 - 1745) was an Italian composer and violinist from Bologna, the eldest son of Giovanni Battista Vitali.

He is known mainly for this famous Chaconne in G minor, written originally for violin and continuo. It was published from a manuscript in the Sachsische Landebibliothek in Dresden in Die Hoch Schule des Violinspiels (1867) edited by German violinist Ferdinand David.

The work's wide-ranging modulations into distant keys have raised speculation that it could not be a genuine baroque work!

’This is the first published arrangement by the celebrated young flute player Alena Lugovkina and it's very good indeed! The piece is a bit of a mystery. Either Vitali was way ahead of his time, or there is a mistake with his dates, as this Chaconne is clearly more technically and harmonically demanding than you might normally expect from a Baroque work. Alena has transcribed the flute part to capture all of the virtuosity that Vitali gave to the original, in the process allowing us access to a work of enormous power. Highly recommended!’
