When Isabella d’Este of Ferrara married Francesco Gonzaga of Mantua it was like a Kennedy marrying a Bush. Together, they turned Mantua into the musical zenith of Europe. Hear the music from their court, with works by Monteverdi, Marenzio, and the first prominent Jewish composer, Salamone Rossi.
Bach’s most indelible chamber music is performed in intimate home settings. Patrons mingle with the musicians to delve more deeply into the music. Local treats and fine wines make this an unforgettable evening.
