Dario Castello

(? - 1656/8)

Italian composer of whom little is known other than that he published two very popular volumes of sonatas for up to four instruments and continuo that apply the new ornamental and drsmatic vocal style to instrumental writing, some of which are scored for contrasted groups such as two violins and two sackbuts. He was probably a Venetian instrumentalist, possibly a musicain at St Mark's.
