The Italians Abroad

Nicola Matteis by Godfrey Kneller

In the Baroque period, Italy was the source of many acclaimed virtuosi, and the place where other European musicians went to study with the great masters. Italian musicians toured more, were more sought after by foreign courts, and earned more than their colleagues in the same orchestras. Italy was also a leading exporter of instruments, manuscripts, and prints. With "Italians Abroad," Repast pays homage to the Italian musicians who traveled abroad to make their imprint on the international scene. Complete program.
