La Serenissima delight in performing and sharing their passion for great baroque music – whether famous, under-performed or unknown. Expect a lavish evening of music-making that ranges from the sublimely beautiful to the jubilant all served up with great style, gusto and joy.
The musical world of eighteenth century Europe was a small one. Tonight’s programme explores the works of those whose relationships were intertwined – they were collaborators, friends and in the case of Telemann and Bach also godfathers to each other’s children. It’s presented from the stage by the orchestra’s charismatic and virtuosic violinist leader Adrian Chandler.
‘La Serenissima have a glorious and all-too- rare ability to make one’s pulse race afresh with every new project’

Adrian Chandler shares his passion for and in-depth knowledge of musical life in baroque Europe to set the broad context of tonight’s programme, tracing musical influences in an era when, despite the challenges presented by the contemporary standards of transport, it was quite normal for composers in one part of Europe to be au fait with what was happening elsewhere.
