About this concert
Francesco Cavalli, born in 1602, was a boy chorister at St Mark’s in Venice under Monteverdi’s direction, and rose to become the Basilica’s principal organist and chapel master. He made a lasting mark outside the church as an opera composer, supplying Venice’s first opera house with nine works and also broadening opera’s public reach as an impresario.
Christina Pluhar’s ensemble L’Arpeggiata joins forces with the Catalan soprano Núria Rial to bring fresh life and vital energy to the composer’s operatic arias, instrumental works and sublime sacred motet, O quam suavis et delecto.
