Event Details

As Stradella stayed just one step ahead of the assassins that pursued him most of his days, he lived a thrilling paradox. He was the most famous musician in Italy while a fugitive, living in the shadows when not entertaining Popes and princes. After a narrow escape from death at the hands of one jealous husband’s hitmen, the head of the house of Savoy enlisted her nephew, Louis XIV, to punish the goons. Divine art from a diabolic source makes for a compelling story, and we’ll illustrate one of the more exciting episodes in music history with Stradella’s incomparable and thrilling chamber music, alongside some thrilling theatrical bits of Lully. It’s the seventeenth century as you’ve never heard it before!
