A programme of music by two hugely influential and pioneering Italian composers in the 17th century: Claudio Monteverdi (1567–1643), maestro di capella at San Marco in Venice, and Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583–1643), longtime organist of St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican.

 

Il Pegaso, the winged divine horse, was viewed as a symbol of wisdom and fame during the Middle Ages and Renaissance – and is also the title of a 1640 composition by the Italian Tarquinio Merula. The ensemble Il Pegaso is a versatile group early music successful specialists, founded in Freiburg in 2012.
