Supported by Continuo Foundation

Across the Alps highlights the instrumental music composed in 17th to 18th Century Italy and France, when composers experimented with musical forms and explored individual instruments' technical possibilities and sonorities. These two countries stand as pillars of this extraordinary period in music history. The crossroads between these two musical traditions tell a captivating tale of cultural exchange, artistic dialogue, and mutual inspiration. This programme will take listeners on an unprecedented journey exploring the crossovers between French and Italian Baroque music and the harmonious fusion of these two musical worlds that bear the imprint of both French finesse and Italian ardour.
