The music lesson

by Guido Morini and Marina Spreafico

Concert-lesson in theatrical form, with harpsichord

The Music Lesson is an original lesson-cum-concert that introduces the audience to the world of ancient music. Today unfortunately there are few people who follow and understand it. Yet this world is closer to our own than is imagined. Moreover, it is only right to try to get the younger generations interested in and if possible passionate about art forms that, for reasons it is not our place to analyze, seem unjustly remote.

Subject
