BAROQUE SOIRÉES | early music concert cycle
A Musical Journey from Milan to Naples
The vocal program of Cappella Mariana traces the artistic and life journey of one of one of the foremost exponents of mannerism in art, Caravaggio, who influenced the entire Baroque aesthetic with his application of the chiaroscuro technique.
The program will take the listeners on tour of Italian composers connected with the places where Caravaggio was active throughout his career. It comprises masterpieces of Renaissance polyphony from the turn of the 17th century when the music of a new (Baroque) era was being born in contrast to the complex polyphonic tradition.
