Alberti, Domenico

Alberti, Domenico

(dōmā`nēkō älbĕr`tē), c.1710–c.1740, Venetian singer, harpsichordist, and composer. The Alberti bass (which he used but probably did not invent) is a broken, left-hand chord accompaniment frequently employed in 18th-century keyboard music.

Studies of Borghese and Barberini patronages have overshadowed the contribution that Aldobrandini made by supporting lesser artists, such as Cavaliere d'Arpino, Giovanni and Cherubini Alberti, Domenico Passignano, Antonio Tempesta, Bernardo Castello, and other painters who, though much beneath the originality of Annibale Carracci and Caravaggio, remain nevertheless important.
If the attributions are correct, then pieces by Alberti, Domenico Scarlatti, Eckard and Wagenseil will have to be added to those listed in the standard catalogues.
