Composer. Ferrandini was active as an oboist for Duke Ferdinand of Bavaria from 1722 and was from 1732 chamber composer to Elector Karl Albrecht; he became director of chamber music in 1737. For reasons of health, he moved to Padua in 1755 although he continued to compose for the Bavarian court; it was in Padua that he met the Mozarts in March 1771. He returned to Munich in 1790, shortly before his death. Lit.: Cattelan: ‘Giovanni Ferandini musicista “padovano”’; Basso, I Mozart in Italia, 556-557; Oxford Music Online.
