Francesco Landini (01/01/1325 - 9/02/1397)

Francesco Landini was the most highly renowned composer of the Italian Ars Nova, a leading representative of the Florentine Trecento style. His father, Jacopo del Casentino (c.1310–1349), was a painter of the school of Giotto, and Francesco composed poetry imitating that of Boccaccio, Dante, and Petrarch, and wrote on other humanist topics, including ethics and William of Ockham’s new logic. The origin of his surname, Landini (or Landino), remains obscure; he is simply named “Francesco” in musical sources. Although born blind, Landini also became a famous organist as well as an instrument designer and tuner. Possibly born in Fiesole, he may have worked in Venice before 1370, and, between 1365 and his death, may also have been organist at San Lorenzo, where he was buried. In 1387, he was invited to plan the new organ for Florence Cathedral.
