When Isabella d’Este of Ferrara married Francesco Gonzaga of Mantua it was like a Kennedy marrying a Bush. Together, they turned Mantua into the musical zenith of Europe. Hear the music from their court, with works by Cara, Tromboncino, Marenzio, Monteverdi, and the first prominent Jewish composer, Salamone Rossi.
