Clematis, Italy on the Baltics
During the seventeenth century, Italian music and its emblematic instrument, the violin, played a vital role in the evolution of music in many countries, including those bathed by the Baltic Sea. The collection, collected by Gustav Düben, organist of the Lutheran Church of Stockholm, at the University of Uppsala contains many scores of composers of various origins including Italian composers. It is in this collection that we found, for example, the unique copy of the Confitebor tibi dominates voce sola of Monteverdi!
This Clematis Ensemble program is a clever and elegant illustration of the great influence of Italian style on the composers of these regions.
An original creation for the Namur Music Festival.
