Domenico Gabrielli (1651-1690) was a member of the group of elite cellists that operated in Bologna, Italy in the seventeenth century. Along with his teachers, Petronio Francheschini and Giovanni Battista Vitali, Gabrielli was one of the pioneers of baroque cello playing.1 Gabrielli's Seven Ricercare for Violoncello Solo represent the first works to be published for a lone cello. Gabrielli was a busy cellist and composer, maintaining employment in Bologna's two premier instrumental groups: the Accademia Filarmonica, and the orchestra of the Basilica San Petronio.2
