Browse: Art & Music (series)
The Art and Music series investigates the musical environment of great artists. While they were painting, who were the leading composers and what music would they have listened to? Were they directly affected by music?
Each CD offers a generous selection of music from the period. Also included is an extended essay on the artist and associated composers, and a useful chronology of his life and works.
On this CD the world of Canaletto is given a musical perspective with a carefully chosen selection of pieces by the finest composers of his time including Corelli, Albinoni, Vivaldi, Handel, J.S Bach, Gluck and Mozart
