Description This study deals with Italian composer Antonio Bioni (c. 1698–?) and his compositions deposited in the Kroměříž music collection. Along with a summary of current research, it also offers new findings about his life and work. Bioni belongs to important propagators of Italian musical culture to regions beyond the Alps in the first half of the 18th century. In his life and work we can see how music centres in the first half of the 18th century - Prague, Wrocław, Jaroměřice nad Rokytnou and Vienna - were interconnected. One part of the study presents analysis of Bioni’s cantata Innocente e il mio martire, stored in Kroměříž, which probes Bioni’s compositional style.
