Classical guitarist Brad DeRoche joins us for two Lunch & Learn sessions. During these sessions Brad will lead Bella Fortuna North guests through a musical-historical tour of Italy. This tour includes beautiful music by legendary composers Vivaldi, Paganini, Giuliani and others as Brad leads you through 500 years of music history.
You’ll begin the exploration in the Renaissance era with the breathtakingly beautiful lute compositions of Francesco Canova da Milano. From there you’ll learn about the Baroque era and the concertos of Antonio Vivaldi. From there you’ll hear works by Mauro Giuliani, a guitarist who was considered the finest player in Europe in the early 19th century, and who counted Beethoven and Schubert as close friends. Additionally, there will be other works by composers whose names are now almost lost to history, but whose charming compositions remain important, if not simply beautiful to experience.
