an Italian violin and viola virtuoso and composer. In 1821, Rolla became the concertmaster of the Teatro Comunale in Bologna and performed along with his father at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan in 1823. The same year, he accepted the position of concertmaster at the Staatskapelle in Dresden on the recommendation of Niccolo Paganini. Rolla contracted an illness in 1836 and died the following year at the age of 38. Rolla was highly regarded as an instrumentalist and composed a few works, notably for violin and viola, of which the most famous are the posthumously published 24 Cadenzas for solo violin.
