The Venetian singer and composer Barbara Strozzi (1619-1677) was probably the most remarkable, talented, famous, and successful woman of her time in the field of music. In 2019, the ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro celebrates her 400th anniversary with a program performed by soprano Emöke Baráth under the direction of Francesco Corti, the orchestra’s new principal guest conductor. Voglio Cantar presents some of Strozzi’s most beautiful compositions for soprano, works by her teacher Francesco Cavalli, and a delightful variety of contemporary instrumental pieces.
