Other Information: Francesca Caccini was one of the few women to achieve individual success and recognition for her artistic endeavors during a time when such a status for women was unheard of. A large part of this was due to her father, Guilio Caccini, who was a well known composer and musician. He raised Francesca to be an independent spirit, as well as an excellent composer and musician. She is the first known female composer of an opera. Francesca Caccini was raised in a family of professional musicians. Her father and her mother were both well known for their musical talents. It was this musically concentrated atmosphere that started Francesca as a musician at an extremely young age. She became extremely proficient, and recognized for her skills in keyboard (primarily harpsichord), lute, guitar, harp, and vocal performance. This is not to disregard her extensive knowledge of composition, music theory, and literature. Francesca's debut came as a singer at the extremely young age of thirteen in the first performance of her father's opera, "Euridice". This was very significant to music history because Guilio Caccini was one of the key members of an intellectual group of Florentine composers known as the "Camerata." They have been accredited with the introduction of "melodrama" into music, which in turn assisted with the motion of music into the Baroque. This particular performance of her father's new and innovative music attracted the attention of King Henry IV of France, who wanted to add her talents to his Parisian court as a paid employee.

Biographies of the woman called La Cecchina (the Songird) noting abilities as vocalist, instrumentalist, and composer from the Here Of A Sunday Morning radio program.
Francesca Caccini
Francesca Caccini, often called "La Cecchina" ("The Songbird"), was born in Florence, Italy, on the eighteenth of September, 1587. Music was a huge part of Francesca's life from almost before her birth, as her father, Guilio Caccini , was a well respected and prolific composer, and her mother, Lucia Gagnolanti, was a singer herself. After Lucia's premature death while Francesca was still quite young, Guilio married another singer, Margherita della Scala. Francesca's younger sister, Settimia, like Francesca was a singer and composer, and their brother, Pompeo, also was known as a singer during his time. With a background like that, coupled with her father's influence, a musical career utilizing the talents that seemed to run in the Caccini family must have been almost inevitable for Francesca. Francesca's musical training began early, and she was known to have played the keyboard, lute, guitar, and harp, in addition to her singing for which she was most famous. In addition to her practical music skills, she was also well trained in composition, and it is reasonable to assume that her father was responsible for much of her musical instruction. However, Francesca's education was not limited to music, and she was also well versed in literature. In fact, she was known as a poet as well as a singer, and probably wrote the lyrics for most of the songs in Il primo libro, the known exceptions being "Difpiegate" (page 97) by Ceba, and "Laudate Dominum de Celis" (page 69), which is a setting of Psalm 148. It has been said that "Che defia di faper che cofa e amore" (page 90) was written by Chiabera, but there is no definitive evidence of this.

Francesca Caccini
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Francesca Caccini (September 18, 1587 – after 1641) was an Italian composer, singer, lutenist , poet, and music teacher of the early Baroque era. She was the daughter of Giulio Caccini , and was one of the best-known and most influential female European composers between Hildegard of Bingen in the 12th century and the 19th century. Her stage work, La liberazione di Ruggiero , has been widely considered the first opera by a woman composer. Francesca Caccini
edit Life
Caccini was born in Florence , and received a humanistic education (Latin, some Greek, as well as modern languages and literature, mathematics) in addition to early musical training with her father. Her first recorded appearance in public is as a singer in the all-sung stage works her father composed for the wedding of Henry IV of France and Maria de Medici in 1600. In 1604 when the entire Caccini family visited France, Henry praised her singing effusively—"you are the best singer in all of France"—and asked her to stay at his court; however the Florentine officials denied his request, and she returned to Italy, where she taught, performed and composed from her father's home. In 1607 her composition of a Carnival entertainment entitled La stiava seems to have led to her hiring as a musician in the service of the Medici court. That same year she married fellow court musician Giovanni Battista Signorini, with whom she would have one child, Margherita, born in 1622.
