Product Description

The Most Serene Republic of Venice bloomed with the arts of painting, architecture, sculpture and music. This DVD presents works of Vivaldi, Marcello, Galuppi, Turrini, Grazioli and others performed by virtuoso Michele Barchi in the sumptuous context of contemporary architecture beautifully filmed by Federico Savio. Charles Burney, visiting Venice in 1770, may well have been thinking of some of these works when he wrote that the Venetians’ “…predominant character remains the delicacy of taste and the wealth of invention.”
