Salamone Rossi

Italian Jewish composer Salamone Rossi (c.1570-1630).
He was a transitional figure between the late Italian Renaissance period and early Baroque. As a young man, Rossi, acquired a reputation as a talented violinist. He was then hired (in 1587) as a court musician in Mantua, where records of his activities as a violinist survive.
Rossi served at the court of Mantua, by request of the duchess Isabella d'Este, from 1587 to 1628 where he entertained the royal family and their highly esteemed guests. The composers Rossi, Monteverdi, Gastoldi, Wert and Viadana provided fashionable music for banquets, wedding feasts, theatre productions and chapel services amongst others.
