In the late fifteenth century, the city of Mantua became a center for the performing arts, particularly during the reign of Vincenzo I Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua. Famed Jewish composer Salamone Rossi, employed at court, was surrounded by a thriving musical community that included Gastoldi, Wert, Viadana, and Monteverdi. This program will explore Rossi’s choral music, as well as the works of his colleagues at the Mantuan court, and explore the influences this talented group of composers had on each other.
