Venice 3 – Bellezza e Bonta, a talk by Philip Thorby
March 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm£5
This is the third of Philip’s talks about Venice in the 1500s. As we saw in the first lecture, Ganassi is at the centre of the musical establishment in a republic which exported its music and its musicians to the rest of Europe. We are lucky that he wrote three books on technique and performance practice, La Fontegara, Regola Rubertina and Lettione Secunda. What do his three books tell us about how music was sung and played in Venice in the first half of the sixteenth century? Well, quite a lot – and not all of it sits comfortably with how we see and hear renaissance music today. Philip will summarise the information from the books and put them into the context of other writers. Then, feel free to join in the conversation!
