'L'abbé Gounod': French Sacred Music during the Romantic Era
Live Concert Complesso Monumentale di San Micheletto
Fri 5 October 2018
Complesso Monumentale di San Micheletto, Lucca
International conference organised by the Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini in Lucques (Italy). Drawing initially on the output of sacred music by Charles Gounod, this international conference intends to re-evaluate a generally neglected or undervalued part of the Romantic repertoire. Given the substantial volume of French church music published during the 19th century, this output deserves to be approached with a fresh eye.
