Product Description

Adrian Chandler and La Serenissima, with virtuoso soloist mezzo-soprano Sally Bruce-Payne, continue their enlightening exploration of the music of Vivaldi focusing on two contrasting eras of the composer's Venetian operatic career.

Vivaldi specialists Adrian Chandler's and La Serenissima's hallmark qualities of erudition combined with crowd-pleasing performances have made them one of the best-selling and acclaimed period-instrument bands performing today. Recently their Gramophone Award-winning album Vivaldi: The French Connection topped a Forbes list of How to Build a Top Quality Classical Music Library. Their last release, Venice by Night made the Top Ten of the UK Specialist Classical Chart. Their 11th release for Avie, Vivaldi: A Tale of Two Seasons once again presents the Red Priest in an engaging and fascinating light. Focusing on two Venetian operatic seasons of 1717 and 1733, the enlightening program juxtaposes the work of an eager young man with that of an older, more cunning composer who had adapted his music to that of the fashionable Neapolitan style.

Personnel: La Serenissima, Adrian Chandler (violin, director), Sally Bruce-Payne (mezzo-soprano)

Critical acclaim for Adrian Chandler and La Serenissima:

"One of the most scintillating discs of the year...another cracking collection of concertos, and the variety is gripping." - TheClassicalReview.com, Best of 2011 (Vivaldi: The French Connection 2)

"A juxtaposition of energy and refinement...a surfeit of musical entertainments" - Gramophone

"Wonderful contrasts, played with fizzing energy, crisply articulated, vividly coloured and passionate." - The Sunday Times (Gods, Emperors and Angels)

This CD is excellent and was recorded earlier this year for Avie records. La Serenissima are on top form with this CD and there are more magical gems. There are arias from two more of Vivald's operas including my favorite L'Incorazione di Dario which has a wonderful three movement sinfonia that opens the opera. The really good news about this group is that they are covering works by the composer that have been rarely heard before or not at all. A sheer delight.

Gramphone Award winning Adrian Chandler and La Sereissima with the amazing talent Mezzo-Soprano Sally Bruce-Payne continue their enlightening exploration of the music of maestro Vivaldi focusing on two contrasting era of the Venice's son Vivaldi operatic set too continue with Venetian career well known passionate,wonderful.

Another award winning album that I received was Music For The Chapel of the Pieta with vocal music and sacred concerti this time brilliance Soprano Mhairi Lawson was wonderful creations and arrangements was Laudate per Dominum (Psalm 112) for Soprano, strings and continuo RV600 indeed Recommended! Vivaldi would give Handel run for his money with skill,impressive works

Regarding about Sally Bruce-Payne Mezzo Soprano was singing impressive Arias from Arsilda RV200 and L'Incoronazione di Dario RV719 shows the award winning La Serenissima are King of Virtuoso Vivaldi music.
Vivaldi' s style changed everything during that period the uncomplicated and charm of Arsilda is amazing, innovation in the by La Sereissima is now acclaimed ensemble in this repertoire with special understanding of Vivaldi music and VIVALDI STANDARDS CAPABLE delivers too us and exploring the exhilarating Vivaldi with over 200 violin concertos and HE DID NOT RE-WRITE OVER HIS CONCERTOS THAT FALSE CLAIM! and with La Serenissima that they are Vivaldi Greatest Interpreters may they continue more award winning Vivaldi albums and amazing Conductor Adrian Chandler and La Sereissima BRAVO VIVALDI!

Highly Recommended!
