About This Project

Our Il Concerto delle Dame inspired programme brings to light the extraordinary music written for virtuoso female voices in the early 17th century, drawing inspiration from the original Concerto delle Dame in Ferrara in the 1580s and the Baroni family in Rome during the 1630s.

 

Music by Barbara Strozzi, Lodovico Agostini, Luzzasco Luzzaschi, Luigi Rossi, Domenico Mazzocchi, Claudio Monteverdi and Luca Marenzio.

 

For 7 musicians: 2 sopranos, mezzo-soprano, harpsichord, viola da gamba, triple harp and theorbo.
