The 17th century heralded a growing repertoire for keyboard and organ works, as new instruments were built and composers innovated with new styles and genres. Northern Italy became the epicentre of a new Italian Style, as musical forms like the sonata, overture, and concerto were invented, refined and went on to dominate Western music. Edoardo Bellotti plays music by Andrea Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi, Francesco Cavalli, Tomaso Albinoni, Giovanni Platti, Antonio Vivaldi, Pasquale Ricci and Giuseppi Verdi on the renowned Helmutt Wolff organ at Christ Church Cathedral, in a concert centred on this musically influential region.

Pacific Baroque Festival 2024 celebrates its 20th year from 27 February to 3 March 2024. ‘In Modern Style – Music from 17th Century Italy’, will include 6 events whose programs are intended to provide some context to the origins of baroque music through historically informed performances.
