Orpheus in the Marketplace: Jacopo Peri & the Economy of Late Renaissance Florence

Orpheus in the Marketplace: Jacopo Peri & the Economy of Late Renaissance Florence (I Tatti Studies in Italian Renaissance History) by Tim Carter & Richard A. Goldthwaite
English | 2013 | ISBN: 067472464X | 496 pages | PDF | 3,3 MB


The Florentine musician Jacopo Peri (1561-1633) is known as the composer of the first operas--they include the earliest to survive complete, Euridice (1600), in which Peri sang the role of Orpheus. A large collection of recently discovered account books belonging to him & his family allows for a greater exploration of Peri's professional & personal life. Richard Goldthwaite, an economic historian, & Tim Carter, a musicologist, have done much more, however, than write a biography: their investigation exposes the remarkable value of such financial documents as a primary source for an entire period.

This record of Peri's wide-ranging investments & activities in the marketplace enables the first detailed account of the Florentine economy in the late sixteenth & early seventeenth centuries, & also opens a completely new perspective on one of Europe's principal centers of capitalism. His economic circumstances reflect continuities & transformations in Florentine society, & the strategies for negotiating them, under the Medici gr& dukes. At the same time they allow a reevaluation of Peri the singer & composer that elucidates the cultural life of a major artistic center even in changing times, providing a quite different view of what it meant to be a musician in late Renaissance Italy.
