17th Century music by Frescobaldi, Castello & Fontana
Love Italy? Come with Ludovico's Band as they journey through the 17th century. Exotic Venice with its spice traders, mysterious lenten masks, golden St Mark's Basilica and the music of Castello and Bassano. Across the valley of the Po to Florence, the city of the Renaissance, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci and the birth place of Opera. Then to Rome where Frescobaldi so entranced his patrons and peers with his magnificent playing in St Peter's Basilica. Hear some of the first sonatas ever written. This was music of the avant-garde, exciting, edgy, flamboyant, full of joy and sprezzatura.
‘A chain of pleasures performed to a rapt, totally absorbed audience.’ The Age
