Giovanni Gabrieli
Birth: 1555
Death: Aug. 12, 1612

Composer. Along with Claudio Monteverdi, he bridged the gap between the Renaissance and Baroque in Italian music. His exact birthdate is unknown, but scholars have narrowed it down to between 1554-56. He lived in Venice his whole life and was organist of St. Mark's Basilica from 1585. Gabrieli was an early experimenter in chromatic harmony and was one of the first composers to combine choral forces with orchestral instruments. His writing for brass was particularly brilliant. He was also an important teacher; Heinrich Schutz was his most famous pupil. Despite his long and productive association with St. Mark's, Gabrieli was not buried there and his music has not been performed in that church since his death. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
