Music in Florence: Cultural Introduction to Italy
Conducted in English
The city of Florence looms large in the narrative of Western music history. Fueled by the power and the pageantry of the Republic and of the Medici dynasty, great art, scientific invention, and extravagant, innovative music developed hand in hand. This class, held in one of the most beautiful cities on earth, traces the chronological span of music history during the years in which the influence and importance of Florence was at its peak: from medieval times, through the Renaissance, and most of the Italian Baroque. Numerous excursions to Florentine institutions, museums and geographic sites of importance around the city will allow us to situate the music of Florence within a rich cultural and historical context.
