The French Court of Catherine de Medici

St. Martin's Episcopal Church

Catherine, who married Henri II King of France, was inclined to express her creativity through festivals. She was known to enjoy dancing and showcased dance-dramas, an early form of ballet. Vocal music, often part of these productions, consisted of one or two voice accompanied chanson or multi-voiced arrangements. A great number of vocal and instrumental music collections were published mid-16th century.

Music during the Reign of Catherine the Great
April 5, 2014 8:00 PM
St. Martin's Episcopal Church
1510 East Seventh Street, Charlotte, NC 28204 

From the 1750s on, the Imperial Court began to look toward Italy for inspiration in cultural matters. Even before Catherine, a large number of artists, architects, sculptors and musicians left Italy for St Petersburg. Chapel masters of the Court Choir also wrote musical entertainments and included Galuppi, Paisiello, Sarti, and Cimarosa. They had a lasting influence on young Russian composers, including Bortnyansky who trained abroad and became the first Russian-speaking chapel master. Experience old St. Petersburg.
