Come enjoy three delightful Sunday afternoons with harpsichord music, sometimes accompanied by flutes and even by a chamber music group.

The Bagatti Valsecchi Museum together with a group of professionals, the Omaggio al Clavicembalo, celebrate the 350th birth anniversary of the French musician and composer, François Couperin with a series of concerts principally featuring his music: “François Couperin e Dintorni” (François Couperin and Nearby Realities).

The concert comments are in Italian, but the music is universal!
