The Early Garden

An hour of browsing through early music. While the 2017 Early Music Festival is in full swing, we will look back at the 2016 edition: Adriaen Willaert in Venice.

Adriaen Willaert was one of the central figures during the Early Music Festival 2016 and is featured in this broadcast. Venice was a breeding ground for musical innovation, and Willaert laid the foundation of the Venetian School.
