About this Recording

MUSICAL JOURNEY (A) - LUCCA: The Old City / Orsetti Palace / San Martino Cathedral (NTSC)


LUCCA

 

The Places

Our journey takes us principally to the old city of Lucca, for centuries independent until seized by Napoleon, who made his sister, Elisa Baciocchi, and her husband its rulers. Lucca was the birth-place of Boccherini and of Puccini and for some time Paganini was employed at the Baciocchi court.

The Music

Violinist, priest and most prolific composer, Antonio Vivaldi was born in Venice in 1678 and spent most of his life there, associated for much of the time with the Ospedale della Pietà, a charitable institution for girls, with a strong musical tradition. The music for the tour is taken from concertos for various wind instruments.
