Andrea Gabrieli

Andrea Gabrieli (around 1530 - 1586) was an Italian composer. He is regarded as one of the most important Venetian composers of his time.

Details on Gabrieli's early life are sketchy. He may have been a pupil of Adrian Willaert[?] at St. Mark's in Venice, where Gabrieli was himself organist from 1566 to his death. He had earlier worked at Cannaregio[?] and Munich, where he met Orlando di Lasso.

Gabrieli wrote over a hundred motets and madrigals and a smaller number of instrumental works. He was also a teacher, with his most notable pupil being his nephew, Giovanni Gabrieli who as well as being a notable composer himself, published a good deal of Andrea's music.
