Ludovico's Band


Vibrant Neapolitan music

Ludovico’s Band continues its 2016 series with a journey to Naples – a vibrant musical centre and the birthplace of the music conservatory.

With its own rich folk music tradition, as well as local composers who included Scarlatti, Pergolesi, Bononcini, Porpora, and Durante, there is scarcely a composer of the first half of the settecento (1700s) who was not influenced by Neapolitan music.
