About

A new venture between Linn Records and La Serenissima: Vivaldi’s ‘Elvira’ cantatas alongside two ’Graz’ sonatas for violin and continuo, newly reconstructed by Adrian Chandler.Vivaldi’s forty-odd cantatas for solo soprano and alto contain some of his finest and most inspired music - output which until recently was relatively unknown. Tremori al braccio was discovered as recently as 1999 by Oliver Fourés in Vienna.

La Serenissima was formed in 1994 for a performance of Antonio Vivaldi’s serenata La Senna festeggiante (RV693) and ten years later, has firmly established itself as one of the leading exponents of the music of Vivaldi and his Italian contemporaries. Since the release of its first CD in 2003, La Serenissima has been universally applauded by publications such as Gramophone,The Sunday Times, BBC Music Magazine, Diapason, Fanfare, American Record Guide, The Independent, The Strad and the Evening Standard for its performances and recordings on the Avie label. La Serenissima has appeared at many of the UK’s leading festivals including South Bank Early Music Festival, Spitalfields, Warwick, Lichfield and the Beverley Early Music Festivals, York Early Music Festival, Cambridge Summer Music, St George’s Bristol and Snape Maltings. They have also appeared in Italy, Germany, Denmark, Belgium and most recently Mexico, performing in Mexico City and the Festival Cervantino (Leon and Guanajuato) to great acclaim. They have also performed for BBC Radio 3 on numerous occasions.
