The Millenarian Venice: Gateway to the East: 700–1797: A Crossroads Between the Orient and Europe

For 1,000 years, Venice was a world capital of trade and culture. Jordi Savall and his international band of ancient instrument performers trace the melodies from across the Mediterranean to Persia, the Ottoman empire; and from Rome to France to 11th century Greece — all through music that moved through Venice.
