An extraordinary musical journey leads us
from Montiverdi’s Mantova to Strozzi’s Venice,
from Corelli’s Roma to Martini’s Bologna. From
Italy we are then transported to England,
the home of Purcell and Händel (who both
took influence from the Italian and French
models), exploring the very different styles of
madrigals, cantatas and opera alongside the
concerto grosso, symphonies and dance music.
The common theme is the sublime human
expression: crying for love.
In the 1600s the ‘lament’, developed into its
very own genre just as Dido’s Lament in Dido
and Aeneas by Henry Purcell. This tormented
adventure is accompanied by exceptional
performers: the Accademia degli Astrusi,
directed by Federico Ferri, and the extraordinary
voice of Anna Caterina Antonacci.
