On an eighteenth-century map of European culture, Italian musicians would be found almost everywhere.

In this fascinating book, eight specialised music historians investigate several important aspects of the Italian contribution, highlighting local musical practices, the aesthetic of genres, and the larger patterns of musical cultivation and patronage.
