Donald Macleod completes his account of Giovanni Gabrieli, and the composer's extraordinary elevation from son of a linen weaver to becoming one of Venice's leading lights.
At the start of his career the composer was known merely as 'Ser Giovanni Gabrieli'; by the end he was addressed as 'Il Magnifico signor'. Donald Macleod completes his account of Giovanni Gabrieli, looking today at the extraordinary affection in which he was held by his numerous international pupils.
