Barocco Napoletano

Songs and Dances in the Shade of Mount Vesuvio

 In this programme,  we invite you to the vortex of the city’s musical life in the Baroque times. You will be guided by a  foursome of exquisite musicians: English virtuoso on historical harps, Sarah Louise Ridy, Belgian soprano Lore Binon and her two compatriots, Jowan Merckx on recorders and Sofie Vanden Eynde on theorbo.

You will be taken  on tour of the crooked alleys filled with music by Falconieri, Da Nola or Trabaci, all from Naples, and their art of improvisation will come in useful especially as they perform the comical villanellas that are so closely linked with Napule, as the locals call their city.

Segui, segui dolente core
