Three Centuries of Patronage: The Medici Musical Legacy - The House of Medici ruled Florence for the better part of 300 years. Their patronage of the arts reached from Dufay to Handel, and this week on Harmonia we'll explore this wide swath of music history through the Medici lens. From the beginnings of Italian opera to the perfection of the baroque concerto by Vivaldi, the Medici influence helped to foster some of the greatest works of art through three centuries.
