Salvator Rosa was a painter and a poet who made several close friends among the performers in his day time. He corresponded with most of them and the characters provide not just a lot of information regarding his lifestyle but also a substantive supply for nineteenth hundred years opera librettos. A lot of the tracks related to him had been unfortunately compiled by various other composers. He was also a lutenist who had written “La Musica” that was a satire on cathedral music. This satire was frequently printed through the eighteenth hundred years. Not surprisingly, it had been released after his loss of life. His close friends included Cesti, Apolloni and Ricciardi. Cesti have scored at least two of Rosa’s poems.
