Live Music In Bath

The Caccinis - early Baroque (Musicke in the Ayre)
Thursday 12 April 2018
Museum Of Bath Architecture
A happy hour of gorgeous music from 17th century Italy, brought to life in the wonderful acoustic of the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel, home to the Museum of Bath Architecture. Early music ensemble Musicke in the Ayre begin their 3rd season of concerts here by marking the 400th anniversary of the death of one of the pioneers of baroque music - Guilio Caccini; in the same year his talented daughter Francesca published a book of her own compositions.

Local soprano Maria Danishvar will be accompanied on archlute and baroque guitar by ensemble founder Din Ghani (who also made these instruments). As well as music by the Caccinis and their Florentine colleague Peri, they will also perform pieces by Frescobaldi, Monterverdi and Strozzi.

Performance from 6.30 to 7.30pm, doors open at 6.00pm.
Tickets £10 at the door, to book contact tbeale@bptrust.org.uk or ring 01225 333895.
