DVD Clip




The Places

Florence grew rich and powerful on the silk-trade and banking, evidenced by an incredible wealth of cultural history preserved in its buildings and other works of art. The city is dominated by its great cathedral and adjacent bell-tower and the famous Baptistery. Running through it is the River Arno, crossed by the old bridge, the Ponte Vecchio, and around rise the Tuscan hills.


The Music

Ranging from Palestrina to Puccini, the music includes an excerpt from the latter's opera Gianni Schicchi, set in Florence, and arias from Verdi, instrumental excerpts by Rossini, a poignant extract from Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp and his mock-serenade from Don Giovanni, ending with a transcription for guitar of a Caprice by the Demon violinist Paganini.
