Gramophone Award-winning Adrian Chandler and his period-instrument ensemble La Serenissima present The Italian Job, a collection of colourful concertos by composers from four cities with a rich musical heritage: Venice (Albinoni, Caldara, Vivaldi), Bologna (Torelli), Padua (Tartini) and Rome (Corelli).

The Italian Job offers a feast of instrumental colour featuring oboes, bassoons, trumpets, trombone, timpani, strings and continuo, by some of the finest composers of the Italian baroque.

"A Four Seasons for all seasons... To become another Four Seasons recommendation takes something special, and this absolutely is." - Gramophone, Editor's Choice (on Vivaldi - The Four Seasons, AV2344)

"These are musicians who quite simply love their Vivaldi." - BBC Music Magazine, Recording of the Month (Vivaldi - A Tale of Two Seasons, AV2287)


La Serenissima have a glorious and all-too-rare ability to make one’s pulse race afresh with every new project, and ‘The Italian Job’ has all their typical hallmarks: a fresh, zinging tone alive with vitality and enjoyment, an effortless easy panache from both ensemble and soloists, and the whole underpinned by a scholarly attitude to programming and performance style which is yet worn with light grace.  Charlotte Gardner
