We're sampling instrumental music from various sources this week, including music for cornetto and keyboard from the Italian duo Seicento Stravagante, from their 2023 release. We'll also follow composer Francesco Geminiani from his home in Italy to Dublin, where he settled in 1733. We'll hear selections from Geminiani and the Celtic Earth, a 2017 recording from Les Basses Réunies.
