Although little is well known of the life span of Giovanni Picchi, he was well-known enough to become depicted in an image over the title page of Fabritio Caroso’s Nobilit? de dame, released in Venice in 1600 and in another model in 1605. He’s shown being a lute participant. He was the organist from the C? Grande in Venice in 1615 and his very own publication, Canzoni da sonar, released in 1625, still offers him there. Additionally it is known that he concurrently experienced the post of organist from the Scuola di San Rocco, Venice from March 1623, but that he dropped out to Giovanni Pietro Berti for the post of second organist at the fantastic Cathedral of St. Tag in Venice in 1624. He remaining to posterity one improvisatory toccata, many dances for key pad, 16 canzonas, and three sonatas for combined mixtures of winds and strings. The music is definitely agreeable, simple enough, and of small importance.
