About

Have you ever stopped to think that some exceptional music has been composed and performed in the monuments and historic sites we all visit?

From America to Europe, from New York to Vienna, Paris, Berlin, Venice and Granada, for over a 1000 years, the greatest composers have devoted their most beautiful masterpieces to these monuments. These memory sites o er in nite musical riches.

[Resonances] draws on Harmonia Mundiís prestigious back catalogue to restore this monumental heritage: 8 volumes of 2 albums, complete with illustrated booklets, maps and chronologies, accompanied by a comprehensive website.

At the very heart of a musical golden age that extends from Willaert to Vivaldi by way of Gabrieli and Monteverdi, St Markís Basilica encapsulates the glorious past of Venice. A true temple to music, its directors of music disdained neither complexity nor a splendour that took full advantage of the spaces and galleries offered by the grandiose architecture. This programme highlights some of the rich musical moments as heard in this incomparable monument during its heyday.
