Gabrieli, Andrea

(1510, Venice – late 1586, Venice)
   Composer who contributed to the rising reputation of Venice as a musical center in the late 16th century, particularly in ceremonial sacred music for feasts, including compositions for cori spezzati and instrumental canzonas, ricercars, and toccatas. In 1562, he met Orlandus Lassus at Frankfurt and possibly studied with him for the two years following. In 1566, he won the competition for one of two organ positions at St. Mark’s in Venice. Later he was influential as a teacher; one of his students was his nephew Giovanni.
