GIOVANNI ANTONIO TERZI (1580 - 1620)
The lutenist, singer and composer Giovanni Antonio Terzi lived in Bergamo. He is
known for his two books of lute tablature printed in Venice in 1593 and 1599,
containing some of the most technically demanding pieces for the lute. Many of
these are arrangements of music by other composers, skilfully designed to
display his own virtuoso ability as a performer, with his own style of
variation and embellishment.
