Personalities | Adrian Willaert | Renaissance | Classical
(A’-dre-an Vil-lârt) c. 1490–1562
Willaert was one of an important group of composers who settled in Italy and there adapted the Franco-Flemish style. He spent most of his career as maestro di cappella at St Mark’s, Venice. He gathered around him an influential group of musicians, including Rore and the great theorist Zarlino. His greatest publication was Musica nova, a collection of madrigals and motets probably composed some time before the book came out in 1559.
