‘THE GLORY OF VENICE’
Sunday 15 July 11.00 am – 3.30 pm – Study Day
A city and its music from the 16th – 20th century
Introduced by Peter Medhurst
with Helen Semple – soprano, Richard Rowe – tenor, Nick Gee – baritone, and Jeremy Limb – piano
With its huge variety of cultural influences from southern Italy, Northern Europe and from the East, Venice was designed as an exceptional place. Its music is exceptional too, and from 1550 to 1750 Venice was at the forefront of musical ideas in Europe. The study day explores the music written for St Mark’s basilica, the operas of C Monteverdi, and the great concertos of Albinoni, Marcello and Vivaldi. The study day also looks at 19th and 20th century operas that were premiered in Venice.
£25.00 (to include tea or coffee from 10.30)
