Andrea Gabrieli Biography
Andrea Gabrieli (around 1510 - 1586) was an Italian composer. He is regarded as one of the most important Venetian composers of his time.

Details on Gabrieli's early life are sketchy. He may have been a pupil of Adrian Willaert at St. Mark's in Venice, where Gabrieli was himself organist from 1566 to his death. He had earlier worked at Cannaregio and Munich, where he met Orlando di Lasso.

Gabrieli wrote over a hundred motets and madrigals and a smaller number of instrumental works. He was also a teacher, with his most notable pupil being his nephew, Giovanni Gabrieli who as well as being a notable composer himself, published a good deal of Andrea's music.
