Celebrating Strozzi 400 with the splendors of music from her birthplace
Silk Mill Gallery, Merchants Barton, Frome
6.30pm - 7.30pm
Musicke in the Ayre return to the Silk Mill with a duet version of their programme celebrating the glories of music from 17th century Venice, where Barbara Strozzi was born 400 years ago. They mix a selection from her huge output with works by her teacher Cavalli and the towering genius Claudio Monteverdi. Local sopranos Maria Danishvar and Jane Hunt join Musicke in the Ayre maestro Din Ghani (on archlute continuo) in this delightful happy hour of early Venetian baroque music, which forms part of Frome Festival 2019.
Tickets £10 at the door, or from Frome Festival Box Office (Cheese and Grain)
