Gonçalo de Baena

de Baena

Gonçalo de Baena (1480?-1540?) was born in Spain and worked in Portugal as a musician for King Manuel I and King João III. In 1536 he was given permission to publish his Arte novamente inventada para aprender a tanger, a didactic book for learning keyboard. The book, which was only found in 1991, includes music by his own, as well as by several important composers of that time.
