Teatro Filodrammatici / at 09:00 PM


It was the mid-1900s when Benjamin Britten dove into the harpsichord part of a host of Purcell songs and decided to rewrite them for piano – “suitable for the contemporary age”. The two leading British composers meet up in an original series of pieces, with a new light shining on the 1600s.
