Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Adrian Willaert (c. 1490 - 7 December 1562) was a Flemish composer of the Renaissance and founder of the Venetian School. He was one of the most representative members of the generation of northern composers who moved to Italy and transplanted the polyphonic Franco-Flemish style there. He was probably born at Bruges, although a secondary source has suggested Roeselare. According to his student, the renowned late 16th century music theorist Gioseffo Zarlino, Willaert went to Paris first to study law, but instead decided to study music.show more
