At the very heart of a musical golden age that extends from Willaert to Vivaldi by way of Gabrieli and Monteverdi, St Mark s Basilica encapsulates the glorious past of Venice. A true temple to music, its directors of music disdained neither complexity nor a splendour that took full advantage of the spaces and galleries offered by the grandiose architecture. This programme highlights some of the rich musical moments as heard in this incomparable monument during its heyday.
