The native Dutchman Adrian Willaert is considered to be the founder . Other important composers of the Venetian School were Cipriano de Rore , Giovanni Croce , Claudio Merulo , Andrea Gabrieli , Giovanni Gabrieli and Claudio Monteverdi .

The Venetian School made in the organ - Toccata and other purely instrumental genres significant contributions to the emancipation of instrumental music; In terms of music history, the concept of making music throughout the room is also extremely important due to the development of the so-called Venetian multi-choir .

Stylistically, the Venetian School is characterized by exploring the chromatic and aiming for strong contrasts in both dynamics and timbre .
