Biography

Giovanni Benedetto Platti (possibly July 9, 1697 (according to other sources 1690, 1692, 1700) in Padua, belonging to Venice at the time; † January 11, 1763 in Würzburg) was an Italian composer.

Platti learnt music in Italy (mostly singing, the oboe and the violin). Whilst he was still in Italy (until 1722), he also learnt to play the recently invented Fortepiano and composed sonatas specially dedicated to it.

In 1722, he was called to Würzburg to work for the prince-bishop of Bamberg and Würzburg, Lothar Franz von Schönborn. There he married Theresia Langprückner, a soprano singer with whom he had eight children. Platti spent the rest of his life in Würzburg, working as a singer, instrument virtuoso and composer.
