Guiseppe Tantri

Welcome to our Famous Dreams page.

Guiseppe Tartini was a sixteenth century Italian violinist and composer.

In 1713, Tartini composed what he personally believed to be his greatest work, “The Devil’s Trill”.

The piece was the result of a dream whereby Tartini saw himself handing his violin to the Devil, who began to "play with consummate skill a sonata of such exquisite beauty as surpassed the boldest flights of my imagination. I felt enraptured, transported, enchanted; my breath was taken away, and I awoke. Seizing my violin I tried to retain the sounds I had heard. But it was in vain. The piece I then composed ... was the best I ever wrote, but how far below the one I heard in my dream!"
