La Leona
EnglishFrançaisItaliano
La Leona, the title of Cesario Gussago’s Canzona XIX, refers to the Venetian lion. Predominantly chordal in style, Gussago’s writing is highly attractive in its interplay between the two opposing choirs of instruments. The title may have been his idea—or that of his publisher, trying to make the work more saleable to the Venetian public!
