Marcello often composed under the pseudonym Eterio Stinfalico, his name as a member of the celebrated Arcadian Academy (Pontificia Accademia degli Arcadi). Although his works are infrequently performed today, Marcello is regarded as a very competent composer.

One of his concertos, in D minor for oboe, strings, and basso continuo, is perhaps his best-known work. Its worth was attested to by Johann Sebastian Bach who transcribed it for harpsichord (BWV 974). He died in Padua on 19th June 1747. Read more on Last.fm.
