Schütz in Venice
Venue: Bedern Hall
Illustrated talk - Jamie Savan
A view of the context of Schütz’s second visit to Venice in 1628-29, exploring the profound changes in musical style that had taken place since his earlier studies there with Gabrieli. Schütz would surely have met Monteverdi, now maestro di cappella at St Mark’s, but this talk will also introduce some of the lesser-known innovators in modern vocal and instrumental music in the Venice of the 1620s.
