That year his Otto sonate per violino e basso op. 1 was published in the capital. Three years later he was living in Cambridge, publishing Sei sonate per violino e basso op. 2 dedicated to the violinist Felice Giardini

He also played in Durham and Norwich. By 1762 he had returned to London, leading a charitable benefit. He joined the Royal Society of Musicians in May 1763. In February 1770 he performed in a benefit concert at the King’s Theatre, Haymarket, in which the famous castrato Fernando Tenducci also appeared. He died in London in February 1782.
