Alessandro Stradella is one of the most fascinating figures in 17th-century Italian music. His original and innovative style touches on all the main musical genres of the time: operas oratorios, concertos, motets, madrigals and cantatas. His great fame gave him prestigious posts in Rome, Venice, Turin and Genoa in a life marked by a series of romantic events, intrigues and love affairs.
At the crossroads of lyrical theatre and sacred drama, of great Roman oratorio and Venetian opera, discover Stradella with the Young European Baroque Orchestra.
A concert full of life and freedom!
