A talk in Italian by Francesco Sani.
The history of Italian music is a fascinating journey through a changing country and ground-breaking developments, with a wealth of evidence clearly showing how Italian musical output, from Stradivari violins to opera, gained world-wide recognition as a byword for excellence. In this talk, Francesco Sani will give a bird’s eye view of the Bel Paese’s musical language, from mediaeval Gregorian chant through Renaissance madrigals to the operas of Giuseppe Verdi and beyond.
Francesco Sani was born in Italy and moved to the UK to study music at undergraduate and postgraduate level. He is a musician, composer, teacher, and examiner, and has given seminars on a diverse range of musical analysis topics.
