Notes and Editorial Reviews

Francesca Caccini, also known as la Cecchina (Florence 1587 – Lucca 1640), daughter of Giulio Caccini, and composer of Euridice (1602), Francesca Caccini is considered one of the musicians who most contributed to the evolution of the new recitative style in the early 1600s. Indeed, she was the first woman composer to write an opera and her great talent and cultural depth are equally apparent in her poetry. In Florence she was composer, lutenist and harpsichord player to the Medici, apart from a few months at the French court of Maria de' Medici. Here, the period group Romabarocca Ensemble led by Lorenzo Tozzi perform her opera Balletto.
