Gregorio Allegri. Gregorio Allegri (c. 1582 – 7 February 1652) was an Italian composer of the Roman School and brother of Domenico Allegri; he was also a priest and a singer. He was born and died in Rome. Life He studied music as a puer (boy chorister) at San Luigi dei Francesi, under the maestro di capella Giovanni Bernardino Nanino, brother of Giovanni Maria Nanino. Being intended for the Church, he obtained a benefice in the cathedral of Fermo. Here he composed a large number of motets and other sacred music, which, being brought to the notice of Pope Urban VIII, obtained for him an appointment in the choir of the Sistine Chapel at Rome as a contralto.
He held this from 6 December 1629 until his death. The Miserere In 1771 Mozart's copy was procured and published in England by the famous traveler and music historian Dr. The music as it is performed today includes a strange error by a copyist in the 1880s.

Life Zelenka was born in Launiowitz, a small market town southeast of Prague, in Bohemia. the eldest of the eight children born to Marie Magdalena (née Hájek) and Jiří Zelenka. The middle name Dismas is probably his confirmation name. His father was a schoolmaster and organist there; nothing more is known with certainty about Zelenka's early years. He received his musical training at the Jesuit college Clementinum in Prague. His instrument was the violone (or bass viol).
His first works, all oratorios, were written in his Prague student days. Zelenka served Baron Hartig, the imperial governor resident in Prague, before his appointment as violone player in Dresden's royal orchestra around 1710. His emigration from Bohemia, for unknown reasons which have been speculated about, was most likely sudden. Back in Dresden, he started as assistant to Kapellmeister Johann David Heinichen but gradually took over Heinichen's responsibilities as the latter's health declined. J.S. Litanies. Francesco Maria Veracini. Francesco Maria Veracini. Francesco Maria Veracini (1 February 1690 – 31 October 1768) was an Italian composer and violinist, perhaps best known for his sets of violin sonatas.
As a composer, according to Manfred Bukofzer, "His individual, if not subjective, style has no precedent in baroque music and clearly heralds the end of the entire era" (Bukofzer 1947, 234), while Luigi Torchi maintained that "he rescued the imperiled music of the eighteenth century" (Torchi 1901, 180). Hs contemporary, Charles Burney, held that "he had certainly a great share of whim and caprice, but he built his freaks on a good foundation, being an excellent contrapuntist" (Burney 1789, 4:569). The asteroid 10875 Veracini was named after him. Life The Veracini music school at Via Palazzuolo 30, 72r (Knop n.d.)

The Four Seasons (Vivaldi) Manierismo. El manierismo es un estilo artístico que predominó en Italia desde el final del Alto Renacimiento (c. 1530) hasta los comienzos del período Barroco, aproximadamente hacia el año 1600. El manierismo se originó en Venecia gracias a los mercaderes y, en Roma, gracias a los papas Julio II y León X, pero finalmente se extendió hasta España, Europa central y Europa del norte. Se trataba de una reacción anticlásica que cuestionaba la validez del ideal de belleza defendido en el Alto Renacimiento. El manierismo se preocupaba por solucionar problemas artísticos intrincados, como desnudos retratados en posturas complicadas. Las figuras en las obras manieristas tienen frecuentemente extremidades graciosas pero raramente alargadas, cabezas pequeñas y semblante estilizado, mientras sus posturas parecen difíciles o artificiales. Como reacción al manierismo, surgió en Italia el caravaggismo.
Después de ser reemplazado por el barroquismo, fue visto decadente y degenerativo. Obras manieristas[editar] Antonio Sartorio. Antonio Sartorio (1630 – 30 December 1680) was an Italian composer active mainly in Italy and in Hanover, Germany. He was a leading composer of operas in his native Venice in the 1660s and 1670s and was also known for composing in other genres of vocal music. Between 1665 and 1675 he spent most of his winters in Hanover, where he held the post of Kapellmeister to Duke Johann Friedrich of Brunswick-Lüneburg – returning to Venice for the summer months.
In 1676 he became vice maestro di capella at San Marco in Venice. Early work in Italy and work as Kapellmeister Duke Johann Friedrich of Brunswick-Lüneburg Sartorio was the brother of composer and organist Gasparo Sartorio and architect Girolamo Sartorio who also had connections with the theatre. Beyond birth records, the first known information about Sartorio relates to the mounting of his first opera, Gl'amori infruttuosi di Pirro, at the Teatro di San Giovanni Grisostomo in Venice on 4 January 1661.
Trips home to Venice Tomaso Albinoni. Tomaso Albinoni Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni (8 June 1671 – 17 January 1751) was an Italian Baroque composer. While famous in his day as an opera composer, he is mainly remembered today for his instrumental music, such as the concertos, some of which are regularly recorded. Biography Around 1740, a collection of Albinoni's violin sonatas was published in France as a posthumous work, and scholars long presumed that meant that Albinoni had died by that time. However, it appears he lived on in Venice in obscurity; a record from the parish of San Barnaba indicates Tomaso Albinoni died in Venice in 1751, of diabetes mellitus.
Music and influence Most of his operatic works have been lost, having not been published during his lifetime. References Citations ^ Jump up to: a b c "Tomaso Albinoni".

Benedetto Ferrari. Benedetto Ferrari (ca. 1603 – 1681) was an Italian composer, particularly of opera, librettist, and theorbo player. Ferrari was born in Reggio nell'Emilia.
He worked in Rome (1617–1618), Parma (1619–1623), and possibly in Modena at some time between 1623 and 1637. He created music and libretti in Venice and Bologna, 1637-1644. Ferrari's Andromeda, with music by Francesco Manelli, was the first Venetian opera performed in a public theatre (in 1637). Subsequently he provided both the text and the music for two operas, both presented in Venice: La maga fulminata (1638) and Il pastor regio (1640).
The 1641 Bolognese staging of the latter included, as its final duet, the text "Pur ti miro, pur ti godo," which was later reused, possibly with Ferrari's music, for the final duet in the surviving manuscripts of Monteverdi's L'Incoronazione di Poppea. Ferrari went to Vienna in 1651, serving the emperor Ferdinand III. None of his operatic music survives. Il Giardino Armonico.

Pietro Locatelli. Pietro Locatelli ca. 1733Mezzotinto by Cornelis Troost (1696–1750) Pietro Antonio Locatelli (born 3 September 1695 in Bergamo; died 30 March 1764 in Amsterdam) was an Italian Baroque composer and violinist. Biography Bergamo Little is known about Locatelli's childhood. In his early youth he was the third violinist and held the title of virtuoso in the cappella musicale (musical establishment) of the church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Bergamo. His first violin teachers were probably Ludovico Ferronati and Carlo Antonio Marino, both of whom were members of the cappella. Rome Travels through Italy and Germany From 1723 to 1728 Locatelli travelled through Italy and Germany.
Locatelli's activity at the court of the regent of Mantua, the landgrave Philipp von Hessen-Darmstadt, is attested by a 1725 document in which the landgrave refers to him as "our virtuoso". One notice describes Locatelli's visit to Munich. Amsterdam Nachlass Music Works Violin. A young violinist The violin is sometimes informally called a fiddle, regardless of the type of music played on it. The word violin comes from the Medieval Latin word vitula, meaning stringed instrument; this word is also believed to be the source of the Germanic "fiddle". The violin, while it has ancient origins, acquired most of its modern characteristics in 16th-century Italy, with some further modifications occurring in the 18th and 19th centuries. Violinists and collectors particularly prize the instruments made by the Gasparo da Salò, Giovanni Paolo Maggini, Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati families from the 16th to the 18th century in Brescia and Cremona and by Jacob Stainer in Austria.
A person who makes or repairs violins is called a luthier. History Turkic and Mongolian horsemen from Inner Asia were probably the world’s earliest fiddlers. The most famous violin makers (luthiers) between the 16th century and the 18th century include: 1658 Baroque violin by Jacob Stainer. Piero della Francesca. Piero della Francesca (Piero di Benedetto dei Franceschi; llamado también Pietro Borghese, Borgo del Santo Sepolcro, en el valle alto del Tíber, cerca de Arezzo, h. 1415 – Borgo del Santo Sepolcro, 12 de octubre de 1492) fue un pintor italiano del Quattrocento (siglo XV).
Actualmente se le aprecia sobre todo como pintor especialista en frescos, pero en su época fue conocido también como un geómetra y matemático, maestro de la perspectiva y de la geometría euclidiana, temas en los que se concentró a partir del año 1470. Su pintura se caracterizó por su sereno Humanismo y el uso de las formas geométricas, particularmente en relación con la perspectiva y la luz. Es uno de los principales y fundamentales personajes del Renacimiento, aunque jamás trabajó para los Médicis y pasó poco tiempo en Florencia. Primeros años[editar] Piero nació en un año no precisado entre el 1406 y el 1420, en Sansepolcro, que Vasari llama «Borgo San Sepolcro», región de la Toscana.
Virgen con Niño (h. 1440). Arcangelo Corelli. Arcangelo Corelli Arcangelo Corelli (17 February 1653 – 8 January 1713) was an Italian violinist and composer of the Baroque era. Biography Baptismal records indicate that Corelli was born on 17 February 1653 in the small Romagna town of Fusignano, then in the diocese of Ferrara. His family were land-owners who had lived in Fusignano since 1506 (a Corelli moved to the area from Rome in the fifteenth century); although apparently prosperous, they were almost certainly not of the nobility, as several fanciful accounts of the composer's genealogy subsequently claimed. [n 1] Corelli's father, from whom he took the name Arcangelo, died five weeks before the composer's birth.
The wealth of anecdotes and legends attached to Corelli contrast sharply with the paucity of reliable contemporary evidence documenting events in his life. However, Corelli used only a limited portion of his instrument's capabilities. Musical society in Rome also owed much to Corelli. Works Discography Giuseppe Torelli.
