337 Kingsbury EnsembleItalian courts of the 17th century were brilliant cultural centers which attracted many musicians, artists and thinkers from all European countries. The influence of the Italian style is therefore felt well beyond the country's borders, particularly in Germany and France, in the music of composers such as Biber, Handel, Philidor and Rosenmuller. Our program illustrates the virtuosic, emotional qualities of the Italian style and its importance in the evolution of European Baroque music.
