4 Pieces From Capricci In Musica (1564) - Score by Ruffo. For ATB Recorders; or Treble Viol, Tenor Viol and Bass Viol. Recorder Trios, String Trios. Italian Instrumental Music of the Renaissance. Score. Published by London Pro Musica (MM.LPMIM01).
Vicenzo Ruffo (ca. 1510-1587) is an interesting and unjustly neglected figure. He was a prolific composer, producing a large number of motets and masses. However, it was as a composer of madrigals that he was most successful. Strong rhythmic interest is perhaps the most outstanding feature of his music; harmonically he was less daring than his more famous contemporary Cipriano da Rore (1515-1565). He spent most of his working life in Verona and in Milan, where he was director of music at the cathedral from 1565 to 1572. The collection from which the present pieces are taken, the Capricu in Musica a tre voci (Milan, 1564), is Ruffos only publication of instrumental music. It is an unusual collection in its mixture of popular and academic elements. CONTENTS: La Disperata La Danza La Piva La Gamba in basso e soprano.
