Andrea Falconiero was born in Naples in 1585 and died there in 1656, though in between he worked in several northern Italian centers, including Parma, Mantua, Florence and Genoa. His first surviving publication was a book of villanelle that appeared in 1616. Linguistically and musically Falconiero's collection is a mixture of Spanish and Italian elements. Stylistically it is also very varied - there are long pieces called fantasias of a kind that had disappeared from Italian instrumental music of this time, which by 1650 tended to consist mostly of variation pieces or sonatas with contrasting sections. CONTENTS: La Gioiosa Fantasia La bella Marchesetta.
