(1520 - 1575)

Born in the Italian province of Puglia, the blind lutenist composer Giacomo Gorzanis may have started his career at the Spanish court in Bari. He eventually settled in Trieste, where he had received citizenship by 1567. His solo lute music shows impressive instrumental skill, and goes some way towards initiating the Italian variation dance suite. He published four collections of lute tablature and two collections of Neapolitan lute songs.
