Fabrizio Dentice

(ca1530 - ca 1590)

Italian composer and virtuoso lute and viol player. Born in Naples, he appeared as an acclaimed virtuoso in Rome and the court of Parma. He published Lamentationi a cinque voci. Other compositions (pieces for lute, madrigals, motets and faux-bourdons) appeared in contemporary anthologies. Fabrizio's nephew Scipione (1560-1635) was a celebrated clavier player and composer of seven books of madrigals and one book of motets. Luigi (died before 1601), possibly Scipione's brother, is known for his Duo Dialoghi della musica, which contains much interesting information about musicians of the time.
