Made in Venice
The lagoon city is renowned worldwide for its art, architecture, as the meeting point between East and West and, in the musical field, for Baroque music.
This edition of the project Musica antica in casa Cozzi (Early Music at Casa Cozzi), promoted by Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche and by the almamusica433 association, will instead reveal to the public the splendours of the music of an older Venice, works in particular from the decades between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
In the six concerts scheduled between January and June 2020, you will discover the voices of the communities represented in the Serenissima (Republic of Venice), such as the Jewish one, the wonders of the polyphonies of the Marciana Chapel, as well as the lesser known fifteenth-century music, and the history of literary and musical publishing and the music connected to it, which made Venice the first major global capital of printed books.
But the season will also feature narration in music, through the dramatic madrigals that are linked, with the antics of the commedia dell’arte, to the history of the theatre, and finally to the popular Venetian music of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and to the vision that foreign writers and composers had of Venice.
