Programme:
»Caravaggio's journey«: A musical journey from Milan to Naples with works by Claudio Monteverdi, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Carlo Gesualdo and others

The Prague vocal ensemble Cappella Mariana puts one of the most important representatives of Mannerism, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, in the spotlight. Against the backdrop of projections of twelve of the artist’s paintings, they present works by Italian composers associated with the places where Caravaggio worked during his career. Famous contemporaries such as Gesualdo, Palestrina and Monteverdi rendered his groundbreaking, often radical depictions of human emotions into music, creating an enthralling musical portrait.
