Sinfonia,'La Bergamasca'

Lodovico Viadana (c1560-1627)

Sinfonia,’La Bergamasca’

La Bergamasca and  La Padovana appear together in Viadana’s Sinfonie Musicale a otto voci which was published in Venice in 1610. This collection was Viadana’s only instrumental publication, and is unusual in that all of the pieces in it are named after Italian towns. Viadana contributed much to the corpus of Renaissance polyphony and, in fact contributed to the development of the basso continuo, a feature much employed in the later Baroque era.
