Settecento explores baroque music from across the Italian States. The Kingdom of Naples (Scarlatti, Mancini), Republic of Venice (Dall’Abaco, Vandini, Tartini & Vivaldi) and the Papal States / Bologna (Brescianello).

As music evolved throughout the 1600’s the violin family became indispensable to composers. As the baroque period really took a hold in the early 18th century, a new generation of virtuoso violinist composers emerged. In this collection you will explore the variety of styles of Italian baroque music that emerged from the early 18th century. Discover the trills of Tartini, the fast passagework and bariolage of Vandini and wind instrument music from Vivaldi’s time at Ospedale della Pietà (check out Vivaldi’s Women for vocal music from this time). Settecento will give you a true impression of the vast array of music from the baroque period.

Settecento is performed by the La Serenissima and joined by YCAT artist Tabea Debus (recorder).
