Captured Emotions: Baroque Painting in Bologna, 1575–1725
Edited by Andreas Henning and Scott Schaefer
The catalogue that accompanies the exhibition provides an engaging survey of one of the most important and influential schools of Italian painting from 1575 to 1725. The book's essays make these paintings—the majority of them deeply religious and as a whole extremely innovative in their time—understandable to a modern audience.
Captured Emotions: Music of the Baroque Period
The J. Paul Getty Museum
Baroque music was
marked by the opera and the concerto, two inter-related but outwardly different manifestations of a pursuit of emotion and expression, and these two forms are carefully represented in the selection of music on this album.
This CD includes musical compositions by Antonio Vivaldi, George Frideric Handel, Johann Sebastian Bach, Arcangelo Corelli, and others.
