Girolamo Alessandro Frescobaldi (September 1583 – 1 March 1643) was an Italian composer and virtuoso keyboard player. Born in the Duchy of Ferrara, he was one of the most important composers of keyboard music in the late Renaissance and early Baroque periods. A child prodigy, Frescobaldi studied under Luzzasco Luzzasch in Ferrara, but was influenced by many composers.  His printed collections contain some of the most influential music of the 17th century. His work influenced Bach and Purcell amongst others. Pieces from his celebrated collection of liturgical organ music, Fiori musicali(1635), were used as models of strict counterpoint as late as the 19th century.
