The Boat from Venice to Padua
6 & 7 April 2014
A sparklingly varied programme of serious and comic pieces from early 17th century Venice.
Monteverdi – Madrigals and Duets
Banchieri – Barca di Venezia per Padova (staged)
Staged for I Fagiolini by Peter Wilson MBE, The Boat from Venice to Padua (1605) is a short musical comedy by monk and musical prankster Adriano Banchieri. To balance this froth, I Fagiolini will perform some profound music by one of Venice’s greatest sons, Claudio Monteverdi who arrived in Venice 400 years ago in 1613.
