About Alessandro Rolla

  • Alessandro Rolla (Italian pronunciation: [ales'sandro 'r?lla]; 22 April 1757 ÔÇô 15 September 1841) was an Italian viola and violin virtuoso, composer, conductor and teacher.
  • His son, Antonio Rolla, was also a violin virtuoso and composer. His fame now rests mainly as "teacher of the great Paganini", yet his role was very important in the development of violin and viola technique.
  • Some of the technical innovations that Paganini later used largely, such as left-hand pizzicato, chromatic ascending and descending scales, the use of very high positions on violin and viola, octave passages, were first introduced by Rolla.
