Heartland Baroque presents an imaginative journey heralding the composers and teachers of the Ospedale that came before Vivaldi, and who gave inspiration and influence to him and his colleagues. Music for baroque violins, dulcian, baroque cello, theorbo and baroque guitar by Giovanni Legrenzi (1626-1690), Johann Rosenmuller (1619-1684) and Giovanni Rovetta (c. 1595/97-1668) will be featured, along with their Venetian contemporaries. Readings from historical texts about the Foundling Hospitals, and poetry inspired by them will also paint vivid portraits of the lives of these composers and the women who studied under their tutelage.


Bound by a passion for playing instrumental music of the 17th and 18th-Centuries, Heartland Baroque is an ensemblemade up of  respected early music specialists from all over the United States.  Heartland Baroque dives into the Baroque musical world with vigor, showing off the immediacy and technical brilliance, the vivacity and profundity, the lilt, complexity, and spontaneity of its composers.
