Travel across Baroque Europe through both time and space, from the Mediterranean to the Baltic Sea, with expert musical guides!
From the German-Italian composer-virtuoso of the early Baroque period, Giovanni Girolamo Kapsberger, who worked in Venice and Rome, to the French harpsichord child prodigy Élisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre who went on to have a long and successful career as a virtuoso performer and composer; and from the Swede Johan Helmich Roman who studied in London and later travelled across Europe in order to bring an international dimension to his work as both composer and music director, to Jean-Marie Leclair, French composer and violin virtuoso, who studied in Turin and later worked in both Paris and the Netherlands, drawing on different European national styles in his work.
