A Tale of Two Italian Cities: Chamber Music from Venice and Naples – The trove of instrumental fare served up by baroque Venice and Naples, the north and south poles of Italian opera, embodied the characters of the two cities as much as their renowned opera seasons. From Naples, we perform the witty Renaissance music of Andrea Falconieri, that pays homage to that kingdom’s ties to Spain, while Francesco Mancini’s and Alessandro Scarlatti’s quartets for recorder and strings epitomize a Neapolitan obsession with music as architecture. From Venice, Dario Castello’s Sonate concertante translate the emotion-driven esthetic of Venetian opera into an instrumental idiom, a move furthered by Giovanni Legrenzi in his sonatas from La Cetra, and in the next century by Antonio Vivaldi with his reinvention of the concerto.
