MICHELANGELO ROSSI (1601 - 1656)
A native of Genoa, Rossi studied with Frescobaldi in Rome and enjoyed the patronage
of the Barberini family, serving also the Estes in Modena and the Sforzas.
Rossi was known as a virtuoso violinist. His compositions, apart from the two
operas he wrote, are represented chiefly by keyboard music.
