A Musical Journey: Lucca, Italy - The Old City; Orsetti Palace; San Martino Cathedral: Music by Vivaldi

Notes & Reviews:

Our journey takes us principally to the old city of Lucca, for centuries independent until seized by Napoleon, who made his sister, Elisa Baciocchi, and her husband its rulers. Lucca was the birth-place of Boccherini and of Puccini and for some time Paganini was employed at the Baciocchi court. 1 - 3. The Old Town 4 - 6. San Martino Cathedral 7. San Michele Basilica 8.

The music for the tour is taken from concertos for various wind instruments.
