Vinci is rumoured to have been poisoned in the wake of a ill-advised affair. Vinci's opera buffa, of which Li zite 'ngalera (1722) is generally regarded as the best, are full of life and spirit; his opera seria, of which Didone Abbandonata (Rome, 1728) and Artaserse (Rome, 1730) are the most notable, have an incisive vigour and directness of dramatic expression praised by Charles Burney. The well-known aria "Vo solcando," from Artaserse, is a good example of his style. Read more on Last.fm.
