Did Luzzasco Luzzaschi invent Bel Canto?
This questions is not quite as frivolous as it might sound. The lifetime of Luzzaschi, from 1545 to 1607, framed an immense revolution in European music: the passage of preeminence from the Flemings to the Italians, the emergence of secular music as the equal of sacred in sophistication, the transformation of musical forms and theory from the dispassionate Apollonian beauties of polyphony to the hyperpassionate Dionysian beauties of madrigalism and monody, the sudden social acceptance of women singers in courtly and urban music, the Birth of Baroque in short.
