*History of the Book Seminar Session-MASSIMO OSSI-Monday, April 7, IUB

This semester's penultimate session in the History of the Book Seminar will be led this coming Monday, April 7, by MASSIMO OSSI of the School of Music's Musicology Department. His subject is FROM THE PATRON TO THE MARKETPLACE: 16th-CENTURY PRINTERS AND THE CREATION OF NEW MUSICAL GENRES. His talk will begin at 4 p.m., in the LILLY LIBRARY LOUNGE, with our usual coffee and cookies starting a half-hour before that.

FROM THE PATRON TO THE MARKETPLACE: 16th-CENTURY PRINTERS AND THE CREATION OF NEW MUSICAL GENRES Massimo Ossi (School of Music, IUB) Lilly Library Lounge--Monday, April 7, 2003

This talk offers an overview of the history of music publishing in the 16th century and of its impact on the patronage, composition, and consumption of music. The development, around 1500, of methods that made printing music easy and inexpensive altered radically the patterns of production and consumption of both individual compositions and entire genres. The dramatic expansion of the market for musical prints ranging from devotional books to collections of erotic madrigals and chansons attests not only to the popularity of music as a form of entertainment but also to the rapid spread of musical literacy outside courts and cathedrals.

Within fifty years of Ottaviano Petrucci's first book of music, published in Venice in 1501, a number of specialized printing firms were issuing hundreds of volumes for distribution throughout Europe. When known, prices and press runs make it clear that performing music from notation was not a skill limited to professionals and highly educated courtiers but was within the reach of even relatively modest households. The various layouts of the books themselves--from the sets of partbooks sold for polyphonic vocal music to the "table" layout of English airs and the score format of the early 17th century monodies--bear clues to the ways music was performed.
