  Vincenzo Galilei - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Vincenzo Galilei (1520 July 2, 1591) was an Italian lutenist, composer, and music theorist, and the father of the famous astronomer Galileo Galilei.
Galilei was a skilled player of the lute, and early in life attracted the attention of powerful, well-connected patrons.
Galilei composed two books of madrigals, as well as music for lute, and a considerable quantity of music for voice and lute; this latter category is considered to be his most important contribution as it anticipated in many ways the style of the early Baroque.

Galileo was born in Pisa, in the Tuscan region of Italy, the son of Vincenzo Galilei, a mathematician and musician.
However, Galileo's father, Vincenzo Galilei, had performed experiments in which he discovered what may be the oldest known non-linear relation in physics, between the tension and the pitch of a stretched string.
Vincenzo, born in Florence in 1520, was a musician.

 Ricercares by Vincenzo Galilei
Vincenzo Galilei mastered the lute at a young age, studied the music of the Turks and Moors, researched ancient Greek music, contributed to the Florentine Camerata -- and fathered an illustrous if ill-fated son, the scientist and philosopher.
Vincenzo Galilei was born in Santa Maria a Monte, near Florence, about 1520 (or possibly later).
Vincenzo's study of ancient Greek music provided him with a basis for his experiments in the new musical style and let to the writing of his Dialogo della musica antica e della moderna (1591), in which he attacks the elaborate polyphonic style of the sixteenth century.

 Michelagnolo Galilei
His father was the Vincenzo Galilei who contributed in such a decisive way to the recovery of the music of the ancient Greeks and to the new style of accompanied monody welcomed with enthusiasm in Florence at the end of the 16th century.
Vincenzo transmitted the qualities of lute virtuoso to his children: besides the first-born Galileo, the youngest child Michelagnolo was a lutenist.
Michelagnolo´s son, Vincenzo, in his turn also a lutenist, was to retain the connection with Poland; Michelagnolo, however, was again in Padova in 1606: one can easily imagine the disappointment of his brother.

Vincenzo’s investigations of musical consonance and dissonance have been said to articulate developments that were likewise central to the practice and conceptual foundations of early modern science.
Vincenzo is thus portrayed as exorcising the numerological ghost of Pythagoras from both the musical and scientific thought of his era.
Vincenzo’s contribution to early modern science is therefore best understood as a failure to integrate mathematics with certain phenomena of sound in empirical terms, one consequence of which was a rededication by Galileo to pursue empirical mathematics in the realm of motion.

 Paul Beier: solo lute of the Italian renaissance.
Born in Florence the 18th of December 1575 (as recorded in a horoscope generated for his brother by the famous scientist), the education of Michelagnolo was dedicated from the very beginning to his training as a professional musician.
Galilei, all too aware of the "difficult" nature of his music, tried in his preface to soften the impact for the uninitiated by not only cautioning him about the unorthodox musical content:
We are reminded here, in the question of diminutions (varied repeats of the dance movements), that Galilei was forging a radical break from the traditional, renaissance concept of passaggi, or florid melodic lines, to the frenzied, almost chaotic style we now complacently refer to as "style-brise.

 Galileo Galilei
Galileo Galilei was an Italian natural philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician who made fundamental contributions to the sciences of motion, astronomy, and strength of materials and to the development of the scientific method.
Galileo was born in Pisa, Tuscany, on February 15, 1564, the oldest son of Vincenzo Galilei, a musician who made important contributions to the theory and practice of music and who may have performed some experiments with Galileo in 1588-89 on the relationship between pitch and the tension of strings.
There, according to his first biographer, Vincenzo Viviani (1622-1703), Galileo demonstrated, by dropping bodies of different weights from the top of the famous Leaning Tower, that the speed of fall of a heavy object is not proportional to its weight, as Aristotle had claimed.

Galileo was born near Pisa, where his father Vincenzo Galilei was a musician.
Vincenzo was also a highly original thinker, and conducted experiments with stringed instruments to devise a new system of harmony in music, over-throwing the music handed down from the Greeks.

Galileo, whose full name was Galileo Galilei, was born near Pisa, Italy, on February 15, 1564.
His father, Vincenzo Galilei, played an important role in the musical revolution from medieval polyphony to harmonic modulation.
Just as Vincenzo saw that rigid theory stifled new forms in music, so his eldest son came to see both the then-dominant physics of Greek philosopher Aristotle and the Roman Catholic theology influenced by it as limiting scientific inquiry.
