Venice Music Project

PROGRAM CONCERT SEASON 2019

Venice Music Project 
 
Picture yourself walking into a Venetian church. You are about to hear music that was written to be performed in this space or a similar one in Venice over 200 years ago.

And Venice Music Project have only recently rediscovered much of that music, so you are among the rest people to hear it in modern day!

In 2013, a group of internationally acclaimed musicians, tired of traveling the world and hoping to make a dierence in this fragile city that is our home, created Venice Music Project. Since our founding, we have been overwhelmed by the international support that we have received to sustain our mission to provide international-level concerts of Venice’s musical treasures for local subscribers and visitors. While we enjoy a cult following among Baroque music lovers, it is equally satisfying to meet first-time concertgoers after the show and hear comments like, “I’ve never been to a classical concert before, but now I am going to start going! I never knew it could be so amazing!” Besides the satisfaction of helping to protect this fragile city and her heritage, we are absolutely astounded by the incredible music we are unearthing through musical archaeology. The world truly went mad for Mozart and forgot all the amazing music that preceded and inspired him.

Composers that he wrote about in his correspondence with his family are just waiting to be rediscovered, and we are on it! Join our cheering section and hear these composers and their voices again.
