Tune of the Day: Amarilli, mia bella

by Giulio Caccini, arranged for flute and piano

Giulio Caccini was an Italian composer and singer of the very late Renaissance and early Baroque eras. He was one of the founders of the genre of opera, and one of the single most influential creators of the new Baroque style. He was predominantly a composer of solo song accompanied by a chordal instrument (he himself played harp), and it is in this capacity that he acquired his immense fame. He published two collections of songs and solo madrigals, both titled Le nuove musiche, in 1602 and 1614. Among the most famous and widely disseminated of these is the madrigal “Amarilli, mia bella” (“Amaryllis, my lovely one”).
