Venice was the world’s first music publishing capital. As early as the second half of the sixteenth century the appearance and dissemination of thousands of printed copies of musical works had created a new market for music, considerably extending the boundaries of music-making and musical practice in both the private and public realms. Venice remained a point of reference for musicians who wished to establish themselves as composers and masters at international level. Andrea Marcon’s programme highlights precisely this aspect, with its selection of works from two of the most important seventeenth-century publications of organ music: the Fiori musicali (1635) by Girolamo Frescobaldi from Ferrara and the Selva di varie compositioni d’intavolatura per cimbalo et organo (1664) by Bernardo Storace.
