A Venetian Carnival
Venice: a city of pleasure, of lovers, excess and extravagance.
Masked figures, courtesans, the wedding of the Doge to the Sea, the exuberance of Carnivale, tales of lust, betrayal and murder. As the weeks of Carnavale approach, imagine time in La Serenissima, and listen to the glorious music of Cavalli, Galuppi, Handel, Lotti, Marcello, Monteverdi, Stradella, Strozzi and Vivaldi.
“One of the most gifted of all the early music groups currently before the public” (Musical Opinion)
