FABRIZIO FONTANA (1610 - 1695)
Fontana, Fabrizio (?c.1610–1695)
Fabrizio Fontana’s career centred on Rome, where he became organist at St Peter’s in 1657, only retiring in 1691.
While Fontana is chiefly known for a small number of generally conservative keyboard pieces he was also capable of a more light-hearted approach, as in his Lament of the Impotent Man – a musical study of an unfortunate human predicament.
