Barbara Strozzi was the most prolific composer in mid-17th century Venice whose music demonstrates her unique passionate voice, along with music of her male contemporaries. Instrumental pieces by her contemporaries in Venice, music she would most certainly have known, include the Balletto by Cazzati.
