Rome Goes Baroque

In the heart of Rome, in the beautiful Biblioteca Angelica, you can attend two splendid and suggestive chamber concerts, exceptionally performed on copies of original instruments. Thechosenpieces come from the brilliant minds of composers such as Vivaldi, Haendel and Bach, who through their works, their style, their students, have forever marked the history of European music.

A journey through their sacred compositions, deeply inspired and masterfully conceived and created, performed by flute, harpsichord and Soprano.
