Music by Barbara Strozzi, Monteverdi & Caccini
Barbara Strozzi lived a life of high musical achievement and scandal in the Venice of the seventeenth century. A prolific and successful published composer in her own time, she was also said to have acted as courtesan at musical and intellectual meetings where “clothes were optional”. This concert of solos, duets, and instrumental works composed by Strozzi and her contemporaries, including Monteverdi and Caccini, will explore her reception and the scandal surrounding her.
