Music, temptations and sins

This series took place onFrom to
Since Ancient Greece, an endless number of philosophers and moralists have vigorously condemned music: its appeal to the senses and its ability to excite primary emotions made it a social threat. At the same time, numerous works have been inspired by vices and temptations, they have recreated the sounds of the Underworld or have travelled the arduous road that leads from sin to redemption. This series delves into the more lascivious and tempting side of musical creation, with a wide selection of pieces composed between the seventeenth and twentieth centuries.
