Giovanni Gabrieli (1557-1612 Venice) is considered the greatest representative of the Venetian school which, while continuing to use renaissance polyphonic elements, inaugurated the baroque epoch. As Monteverdi, he is a transitional figure who spanned two epochs thanks to his extraordinary talent. In this concert Marjia Jovanovic and Nicola Lamon will perform works for two organs by Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli on the two organs in the Frari Church.
