Girolamo Frescobaldi and Friends: A Musical Meet-and-Greet

The Istituto Italiano di Cultura will host a presentation of the 'season opener' concert: Frescobaldi & The Glories of Rome. The event will introduce some of the brilliant music and musicians of early 17th-century Rome, including Girolamo Frescobaldi (organist at San Pietro for over thirty years!), Luigi Rossi, Stefano Landi and others. Arias and madrigals, dance music, variations, sacred music and early sonatas will be explored in this informal talk, which will also include live and recorded musical examples, projected images, and a Q&A.
Speaker: Alison Melville of the Toronto Consort, Artistic Director of the group’s upcoming concerts Frescobaldi & the Glories of Rome.
