Giulio Il Romano
A concert for Caccini (1551 – 1618)

An acclaimed ensemble of Florentine and Roman virtuosi makes their New York and US debut with a commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the death of Giulio Caccini (1551 – 1618).

Roman by birth and Florentine by choice, Giulio Caccini was a founding member of the Florentine Camerata, sometimes known as the Camerata Bardi, the gathering of composers, poets, theorists, and performers who gave life to a new art form called opera.

Please join us in the ravishing 17th-century library of the House of the Redeemer, a space of the same era as opera's birth, to honor the composer, tenor, and multi-instrumentalist who changed the course of music history.

Giulio il Romano is made possible in part by the generous support of NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò.
