The 17th century was marked on the one hand by war, infirmity and devastation, but at the same time by great innovations in research and science. In music, which until then had been characterized by structure and order, new ideals such as virtuosity and emotionality developed and created an antipole to the problems of the time. The new view of ""Beauty - Belezza"" places Lina Tur Bonet at the center of her very personal programme, which brings together what she considers to be the most beautiful and stirring violin works of the period, presented in her own virtuoso and highly emotional style of playing.
