Music by Barbara Strozzi, Antonia Bembo, Francesco Cavalli, and others

Born four centuries ago in 2019, Barbara Strozzi (1619-1677) was at the heart of the unique and thriving musical culture of Venice. Taught by Francesco Cavalli, the city’s most prominent composer, she and Antonia Bembo (ca. 1640-1720) found distinctive ways to sing and to create extraordinarily passionate music. The program includes captivating songs and powerful laments by Barbara Strozzi from several of her eight published books, as well as arias from Antonia Bembo’s book Produzione armoniche and from Cavalli’s Armide.
