Live concert of Baroque music

 

Many people enjoy classical music but don't know exactly why Baroque music is so special to the genre. The musical era of the Baroque came following the Renaissance and lasted from about 1600 to 1750. Many of the greatest classical music composers who ever lived made their mark during this period, which is why you will likely recognize many Baroque music compositions. Hearing Baroque in Venice is a unique and beautiful way to make your holiday something you'll never forget.

Hearing Baroque music performed live, you'll understand why it's so essential to attend a classical music concert live as opposed to just listening to a recording. The virtuosity of the performers in the I Musici Veneziani orchestra is showcased on stage, as you watch them bring the sounds famed composers such as Verdi and Puccini to life. The opera singers express the full range of their vocal talents and transmit all the emotions inherent in the words they sing.

It has often been said that music has the power to transport and to transform, and this is more than evident when you experience Baroque in Venice. The birthplace of so many wonderful compositions is the best place to hear a live concert of Baroque music, which will transport you back to that luxurious and elegant era in Venice's long and rich history. When you hear Baroque music in Venice with I Musici Veneziani, you'll understand how this music has remained just as amazing today as it was when it was first released centuries ago.

Baroque music from Verdi to Puccini comes alive again in Venice

 

The operas of Giuseppe Verdi and Giacomo Puccini are among some of the most famous and beloved compositions of the Italian opera genre. Signature arias from the works of these two composers have made their mark throughout the centuries and are instantly recognizable. Hearing Baroque music in Venice performed live at the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro is the best way to discover why composers like Verdi and Puccini have withstood the test of time and remain exceptional even today, after hundreds of years.

Both Verdi and Puccini lived at the turn of the 20th century. Verdi was born in 1813 and died in 1901, and Puccini was born in 1858 and died in 1924. Their compositions mark a particular time in Italian history, with strong roots in romantic Italian opera that developed into unique individual signatures. Verdi's La Traviata and Rigoletto, and Puccini's Tosca and La Boheme evoke emotions that span the centuries and express what make us all human.

Hearing Baroque music in Venice is one way you can take yourself back in time to a place when La Serenissima, the Venetian Republic, was an important and wealthy force in Europe. All the power, desire, and importance of this seafaring people is wrapped up in the music that filled its palaces and concert halls. A concert by I Musici Veneziani, in period costume to evoke the Baroque era, is a wonderful way to experience this music.
