Biography

Kapsberger was a Venetian virtuoso performer and composer of the early Baroque period. He was mainly active in Rome, where his works were published. A prolific and highly original composer, he is chiefly remembered today for his lute, theorbo and chitarrone music, which was seminal in the development of these as solo instruments.
