Il Giardino Armonico

Con Affetto

Event Slider

Founded in 1985 and conducted by co-founder and director Giovanni Antonini, the Il Giardino Armonico ensemble quickly established itself among the leading performers of early music on period instruments. Focusing on an instrumental repertoire from the 17th and early 18th centuries, this program puts the accent on instrumental music as an autonomous language capable of moving and stirring the affections irrespective of any vocal counterpart, and on the Concert as key to defining Baroque musical language.
