Marljivi prepisovalec in skromni skladatelj: dva obraza Francesca Barsantija (ok. 1690–1775)

  • Michael Talbot Univerza v Liverpoolu
Ključne besede: Francesco Barsanti, glasbeni kopist, glasba v Britaniji, vokalna glasba


Francesco Barsanti, italijanski glasbeni imigrant v Britaniji, je za dodatni zaslužek ob igranju v orkestru in učenju delal tudi kot glasbeni kopist. Medtem ko je bila njegova inštrumentalna glasba natisnjena, so njegova vokalna dela večinoma ostala razpršena v rokopisih, pogosto brez navedbe avtorja, med deli drugih skladateljev, katerih dela je prepisoval.
