Bernardo Storace

(?1637 ca. – ?1707 ca.)

The only information about this composer is that which we derive from the only work that remains: the “Multitude of various tablature compositions for cymbal and organ”, published in 1664 in Venice. We know that the work is by “Bernardo Storace, deputy Kapellmeister of the illustrious Senate of the noble and exemplary city of Messina.” The collection consists of a series of variations on all themes that were used for this kind of music at the time. The style of Storace, according to critics, comes between Frescobaldi and Pasquini.
