Item Number: MM.LPMIM11

Giovanni Bassano (c.1558 - c.1617) was an Italian Venetian School composer and cornettist of the late Renaissance and early Baroque eras. He was a key figure in the development of the instrumental ensemble at St. Mark's basilica, and left a detailed book on instrumental ornamentation, which is a rich resource for research in contemporary performance practice. It is not known if he was related to Anthony Bassano a member of a well-known Venetian family of musicians. These pieces are suitable for any relatively quiet instruments, such as the violin famil, viols and recorders.

  • January 05, 2009 Consistent, pleasant, ideal for background.

    I do not consider this material sufficient melodic to be concert-worthy in serious settings. However, it's LOVELY as background music for gigging.
