    Venice was a leading center for the dramatic musical developments at the turn of the 17th century. Its relative independence of the Catholic Church in Rome, its cosmopolitan economic and social life, and the influence of its private citizens and churches created the perfect environment for engagement with the “modern” style. The search for expression led to the creation of stunning works for voices, strings, early brass and continuo.

    Three of Hawaii’s leading early music performers join the Canadian-American ensemble Sacabuche in a program that explores this repertoire with breath-taking works by Venetian composers like Giovanni Gabrieli, Dario Castello and Giovanni Legrenzi. It also explores the far-reaching influence that Venetian composers exerted elsewhere in 17th century Europe.
