The “Sounds and vision of Caravaggio”
Art masterpieces are brought alive by the scintillating music of the 17th century. The gallery once more gives life to the notes of Frescobaldi, Monteverdi, Falconieri and other great composers, many of whom were active in Baroque Rome. The performances are accurate early music representations, with period instruments and practices. Voice, Baroque guitar, Baroque transverse flute, percussion, and lutes are the protagonists. The tour, conducted by an art historian, is interspersed with performances in the various rooms, (Poussino Room, the Ballroom, Quadrilatero, the Aldobrandini Room) creating a crescendo of emotions that reaches its grand finale with a concert in the stupendous Throne Room (Sala del Trono).
