Music History Courses

Music in Venice

“Music pervades the soul of Venice as surely as the waters of the surrounding Lagoon penetrate to the heart of the city” [John Julius Norwich]. During this course we explore five centuries of music created at and inspired by the Most Serene Republic, ranging from the Gabrielis and Monteverdi to Vivaldi, Rossini and Reynaldo Hahn.
