Summer Festival 2023: Cecilian Ensemble
- Date: Sunday 2 July 2023, 15:00 –
- Location: Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall, Music
- Cost: £10 (general admission) and free for students
This programme focuses on a violinist-composer, Carlo Ambrogio Lonati (c.1645-post 1701) who was active in Rome.
A single iconic violinist dominated the scene in late 17th century Rome: Arcangelo Corelli. His fame and centrality were legendary, but did his success drown out the voices of lesser-known musicians? This concert uncovers the violinists and composers who worked in Rome and who spun their careers outward from the Italian capital, out of Corelli’s shadow.
