The Venetian singer and composer Barbara Strozzi (1619-1677) was probably the most remarkable, talented, famous and successful woman of her time in the field of music. In 2019 we celebrate her 400th anniversary with a programme of some of her most beautiful compositions as well as works by her teacher Cavalli and a delightful variety of contemporary instrumental pieces.
