The Istituto Italiano di Cultura in collaboration with The Toronto Consort, presents a lecture about Neapolitan music by Lucas Harris.

Free admission

Music has long been important to the people of Naples, a city which many have considered the musical capital of Europe. Music of great sophistication was composed for her court, churches, palazzi, and theatres, and yet the composers working in these places were fascinated by the vitality of the folk music they heard in the streets and in the countryside. This lecture / presentation will explore folk influence in the work of Neapolitan composers from the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries. The event will also present research for the upcoming concert The Soul of Naples presented by the Toronto Consort in collaboration with the Vesuvius Ensemble.
