From the late Renaissance until the middle of the Eighteenth Century, Venice was the scene of unrivalled musical splendour, encompassing the magnificent ceremonial music heard at Saint Mark’s Basilica and the virtuoso music-making at the charitable institutions known as the Ospedali.

This box set provides a traversal of key instrumental genres of the period when La Serenissima was a welcoming destination for musical innovators whose names are synonymous with virtuosity. An intoxicating excursion.
