Celebrating Strozzi 400 with the gorgeous arias, duets and trios from her birthplace
The 400th anniversary of Barbara Strozzi's birth gives us another reason to indulge in some glorious music from Venice, this time exploiting the potential of 3 sopranos with continuo. The programme includes sacred and secular works by her, together with works by Monteverdi, Grandi and her teacher Cavalli. Musicke in the Ayre's Bath-based team (Maria Danishvar, Jane Hunt and Philippa Neaverson) rekindle their highly successful trio partnership in exploring some new repertoire while revisiting some of their favourites with Din Ghani on his archlute.
