(p.1) Introduction
Curious and Modern Inventions

Rebecca Cypess

University of Chicago Press

A need exists for a thorough reassessment of the revolutionary instrumental repertoire of early 17th-century Italy. Rather than considering instrumental music on its own or in relation only to vocal music, this chapter argues for engagement with recent work on artisanship and technology in the history of science, literature, and visual art.

Keywords:   instrumental music, instruments, instrumentality, Stile moderno, artisanship, vocal music, early modern Italy, Baroque
