La Serenissima Vivaldi

Vivaldi has his rightful place but there are lesser known names here, too, that also find convincing advocates in La Serenissima. Sound quality excellent throughout.

Biography: La Serenissima was formed in 1994 for a performance of Antonio Vivaldi’s La Sena festeggiante and has now firmly established itself as one of the leading exponents of the music of eighteenth century Venice and connected composers. Since its first CD release in 2003, La Serenissima has been universally applauded by publications including BBC Music Magazine, Diapason. Profile: La Serenissima is a British ensemble, which is specialized in Italian baroque music. Founded in 1994.

Arguably the most iconic piece of classical music, Le Quattro Stagioni is presented here in the Manchester version, being more faithful to Vivaldi’s original intentions.

The first half showcases two concertos by Vivaldi alongside music by Brescianello - a composer who was integral to the dissemination of Vivaldi’s music in Germany.

La Serenissima was one of the first orchestras we welcomed to The Apex and their performance then of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons was breathtaking. Now we are celebrating The Apex’s 10th birthday, it seems the perfect time to invite them back.
