Venice by Night – La Serenissima, Adrian Chandler

The tenth release by Adrian Chandler and La Serenissima for Avie – coinciding with the tenth anniversary of the label – has all the hallmarks that have made the Vivaldi specialists one of the best-selling and acclaimed period-instrument bands performing today. Chandler’s erudition and the ensemble’s crowd-pleasing performances combine to produce recordings that are at once popular and enlightening. Venice by Night evokes an era of the Venetian Republic when the arts flourished, attracting audiences from all over Europe, including scores of royalty. Feeding the tourist trade, the resident composers revelled in creating everything from grand operas to serenatas, virtuoso concertos to sinfonias, motets to gondoliers’ ballads. As with the chart-topping Vivaldi: The French Connection 2 (AV 2218), which featured the world-premiere recording of the flute concerto Il Gran Mogol, Adrian Chandler has once again unearthed numerous works from this period and recorded them for the first time.



 "...This is an outstanding program, beautifully performed, with great sound and exceptionally detailed and thorough notes..."

Adella Crawford - American Record Guide - November/December 2012

 


 "...The standard of performance is extremely good, with an excellent sense of tempo and intonation. Adrian Chandlertruly has a good grasp of the style..."

                  Performance *****        Recording ****

"Peter Whelan is a virtuoso bassoonist is one of Vivaldi’s 38 concertos for the instrument, bounding his staccato way through the outer fast movements and revealing a honeyed lyricism between. Simon Munday proves an impeccable trumpeter in ... two splendid pieces by Albinoni and Porta. His playing remarkable for its restraint, balancing ideally the strings of la Serenissima, transparent yet lively and energetic. The clarity of contrapuntal lines in a fugue on four subjects by Veracini is exemplary. Recorded sound throughout is excellent. With five ’first recordings’ this is not to be missed."

George Pratt - BBC Music magazine - November 2012





*****
La Serenissima are well up to their expected high standards in this interesting collection of concerted and vocal pieces by, for the most part, 17th and 18th composers ranging from the well known (Albinoni, Vivaldi) to the relatively obscure (Pollarolo), spiced by traditional Venetian songs. The result is a delight and not to be missed.
