Domenico Pellegrini (early 17C - c.1682)
Domenico Pellegrini was likely born in Bologna, Italy, and worked there as a performer and teacher. Like his other contemporaries, Pellegrini wrote music that included both the plucked (pizzicato) and strummed (battute) styles. Little is known of Pellegrini’s life other than that.
In his one book of guitar music, Armoniosi concerti sopra la chitarra spagnuola, Pellegrini includes some baroque dance forms of the time, passacaglias, and chaconnes. You can check out an overview of the contents of Armoniosi concerti here.
