Carlos Seixas

1704 (Coimbra, Portugal) – 1742 (Lisbon)

Seixas went to Lisbon in his teens, and met Scarlatti (at the time a resident) there. He went on to inherit Scarlatti’s position as Royal Chapel Master. It’s reported that when it was proposed to Scarlatti that he give Seixas harpsichord lessons, he suggested that the younger man should give him lessons instead.
