Concerto, 'La Cintola' - Castrucci, arr. Moffat Andante; Molto quasi adagio
Larghetto - Weber, arr. Kreisler

There were two Castruccis, Italian musicians who both came to England, but of Prospero we know very little except that Dr. Burney says he died in 1760, and that he was the original of Hogarth's picture, 'The Enraged Musician.'

Pietro, a distinguished pupil of Corelli, was, for a time, leader of Handel's opera band.
Besides being a violinist, he was renowned as a player on an instrument which he himself had invented and which he called Violetta Marina, and in one of Handel's operas there is an aria with accompaniment for two of these which was played by the two brothers. After leaving Handel, he went to Ireland, where he was, for a time, conductor of concerts in Dublin, and, so far as we know, he died there in 1752. Alfred Moffat, whoso name appears often on programmes as arranger of old music, has done a good deal more than the word 'arranged' at all adequately describes. It is not too much to say that he hag re-discovered a whole school of medieval music which, until he unearthed it, had been neglected, and practically lost, for generations.
