10 Jul 2021 Once Only Event
The enchanting plucked strings of Ensemble 642 bring to life one of the most groundbreaking periods of musical creation, the seventeenth century in Italy, known as the ‘Seicento’, a truly modern moment in musical history. With the birth of new genres such as the earliest operas and virtuosic instrumental music came new instruments, the arpa doppia (Italian baroque triple harp) and the tiorba or chitarrone (theorbo). Performed only in the exclusive circles of the Italian courts by virtuoso composer/performers such as Castaldi, Kapsberger and Frescobaldi, hear this music, which aims to bewitch the senses and move the soul, in its most intimate duo setting.
