Italy is where the Baroque began – in Rome, Naples, and Venice – with all its grandeur, sumptuous richness, vitality, tension, emotional exuberance and its overwhelming dramatic appeal to the senses. A host of noted composers and musicians flocked to Italy, as did noblemen and princes, and from Italy manuscripts and scores spread across Europe, to Dresden, northern Germany, Holland and England. Even France fell to Italian charms. Domenico Scarlatti was responsible for taking Italy to Spain and Portugal.
The Orchestra Internazionale d’Italia String Ensemble will paint an unusual Italian Baroque chamber music palette.

Duration: approximately 2 hours, including one interval
