Opera Intitulata Fontegara by Sylvestro di Ganassi, was published in Venice in 1535. This recorder treatise is important because it discusses recorder technique in greater detail than ever before, and was the first manual to teach the art of diminution. This volume presents an outline to the author, the main points of his treatise and the art of applying divisions to music.
