Founded by Adrian Chandler to communicate his love of Vivaldi, baroque orchestra La Serenissima’s performances of the wildly popular Four Seasons are some of the most dynamic and fresh around.
Chandler uses the ‘Manchester manuscript’ – the only contemporary fair copy which shows evidence of Vivaldi’s direct supervision. In La Serenissima’s hands, this research-based approach translates into spectacular virtuosity and details you may never have heard before.
The programme is completed by further concertos by Vivaldi and music by his contemporaries Pisendel and Brescianello, composers who brought his music to Germany, forming the link between Vivaldi and Bach.
