She is thought to be the illegitimate daughter of Giulio Strozzi a poet of the 17th century.
She was also the pupil of singer and opera composers Francasco Cavalli
When she was 16 Nicolo Fontei dedicated two volumes of solo songs to her. Strozzi's Career She was a great singer and composer.
She only sang at home until Giulio founded the Accademia degli Unisioni(Academy of the Unisons), a musical subdivision of the more important literary acadeny, the Accademia degli Incogniti(Society of the Disguished Ones).
She sang at the meetings and suggested the subjects on which the members exercised their debating skills Strozzi's Career continued... Her career as a composer began in 1644.
She was the most extensively published cantata composer.
She published 8 volumes of arias, madrigals, motets, and cantatas.
All her works were vocal and numerous had text from her father Giulio Strozzi, and other members or the group.
She was a gifted writer and might have set her own texts, but it is not known for sure.
Barbara Strozzi Strozzi's works Strozzi has several cantatas where she uses strophic vaiations.
Her cantata Ardo in tacito foco that was published in 1654 in her third printed collection, is a self contained compostion in strophic form.
This piece each stanza is subdivided into sections that range from simple recitative to aria style. How did she differ from male composers? She learned a lot of what she knew from male composers, so in some ways her writing was similar to them.
Like using strophic form with her cantats, which Monteverdi use with Combattimento.
One way that her works did differ was that she wasn't restrited to writing for the church. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME
