Music Tourism Generates £2.2bn

The printing of music was part of Veniceas flourishing publishing industry, and the exhibition includes a number of examples of printed music that hint of illuminated manuscripts. Museum director Nathalie Bondil said the printing of music books allowed each instrument to get its own voice, leading to the invention of the modern concerto. Individual galleries have their own soundscapes of music that Bondil said is played on the instruments depicted in the roomas paintings. Audio guides, provided free with admission, also provide period music. In one gallery, some of the centuries-old wooden instruments are displayed in vertical glass cases. Bondil said Splendore a Venezia follows a string of exhibitions combining art and music that started in 2009 with Imagine: The Peace Ballad of John and Yoko. There will be more, she said. All artists are connected to many things, not just to one specialized area, Bondil said. aInspiration has no boundaries,a she said. aWe have to open the doors.a Goldfarb cites Veniceas political system, its wealth and its synthesis of local, European and Byzantine cultures as contributors to its distinctive forms of artistic expression. But he singled out its geography and climate, ain which forms emerge and dissolve in the palpable, humid, colour-refracting atmosphere.a Colour, soft and saturated, is evident in many of the Venetian paintings on display, particularly in a wall of paintings by Canaletto. In drawing, the apalpablea atmosphere of Venice is rendered in ink and washes in which forms are described less in outline than with a vaporous and tactile density.
