Michelangelo Rossi is one of those composers who have become known largely through one composition. In this case it is the Toccata VII , part of the collection of toccatas and correntes which is the subject of this disc. The reason for its popularity is the remarkable harmonic progressions which are only fully conveyed if played on an instrument in meantone temperament. The Dutch organist and harpsichordist Ton Koopman, who has always been very interested in the connection between repertoire and temperament, included this piece in his debut recording of It has been recorded often since then as the use of other tunings than the modern equal temperament has become quite common.
Rossi was born in Genoa and was educated in playing the violin and the keyboard. As he was known as Michelangelo del Violino we may assume that playing the violin was his main profession. It is likely that he received his musical education in his birthplace but we don't know for sure who his teachers were. Information about his life and career is scarce anyway, and there are several gaps in his biography. It is known that he spent three different periods of his life in Rome.
During the first period he probably composed his madrigals. He was a member of the court of Cardinal Maurizio of Savoy; one of his colleagues was the madrigal composer Sigismondo d'India who had a notable influence on Rossi's style of composing. That also comes to the fore in his keyboard works. These may have been written during Rossi's second period in Rome, from to It is this part of his oeuvre which has become best-known.
The collection includes ten toccatas and ten correnti. The toccatas are the most remarkable part. Magnificat Neil Cox 4. Awake my Glory Kenneth Leighton 7.
