Michelagnolo/Michelangelo Galilei was born in 1575 as the second son of the influential music theoretician Vincenzo Galilei and was the younger brother of Galileo Galilei. Michelangelo, who was considered a musical prodigy during his youth, embarked on the career of a professional lutenist and, following several stations in Poland and Lithuania, entered the service of the Court Orchestra of Duke Maximilian I of Bavaria in Munich on 16 February 1607. Axel Wolf presents here Galilei’s Primo libro d´intavolatura di liuto, Munich 1620. The German lutenist, Axel Wolf, studied with Hans Michael Koch and Rolf Lislevand.
