This concert explores some of the underrepresented music of the 16th century in Italy. We will feature works by the first published black composer, Vicente Lusitano, as well as music by Maddalena Casulana, the first woman composer to have an entire book of her music published. In addition to a few works by popular masters like Monteverdi, we will feature works by Salomone Rossi, an Italian Jewish violinist and composer who, like Monteverdi, was a transitional figure between the late Italian Renaissance period and early Baroque.
