Catalogue No.: SIGCD663
Release Date: 12th February 2021
‘Settecento’ is the style of art, music and architecture that emerged in Italy in the early 18th Century, celebrated here by La Serenissima and Adrian Chandler with a collection of works from that era.
The works are grouped by the areas of Italy where each composer worked, including the Kingdom of Naples (Scarlatti, Mancini), Republic of Venice (Dall’Abaco, Vandini, Tartini & Vivaldi) and the Papal States / Bologna (Brescianello).
The ensemble La Serenissima is recognised as the UK’s leading exponent of the music of 18th Century Venice and connected composers. Uniquely, the group’s entire repertoire is edited from manuscript or contemporary sources. It has become synonymous with virtuosity, dynamism and accessibility, uncovering new repertoire and
making it available to all through live performance, recordings and educational initiatives.
