Aliases: Nicolaus, Niccolo, Nicolò
Born: 1513, Lucca
Died: 1593, Lucca
Italian composer and trombonist. In late 1543 he was a trombonist in the Cappella di Palazzo, instituted in that year by the Lucca government. In 1557 he became its director, an appointment that he held until his death. His madrigals show a capable assimilation of contemporary trends: the prevalence of five-part writing, and the use of madrigalisms and the fashionable misura cromatica.
