The romance and mystique of Venice made it an essential part of the Grand Tour. For those who could afford it a painting made an impressive memento of their visit, and the greatest master of such views was Canaletto (1697-1768), whose working life was spent recording the beauties of his native city. On this CD, the world of Canaletto is given a musical perspective with a carefully chosen selection of pieces by the finest composers of his time. Inside, Hugh Griffith provides explanatory notes on his life and musical environment.
