Bologna was a major musical hub during the second half of the 17th century with the Basilica of San Petronio at its centre. This was for a long period the largest church in Christendom and was home to a virtuosic centre of trumpet playing, presented here through the works of the great Torelli and Giovanni Bononcini. In addition there will be superb concertos by Verona’s Dall’Abaco and a fabulous Chaconne by Brescianello of Bologna.
