Established in 1994, La Serenissima is recognized as the UK’s leading exponent of the music of 18th-century Venice. Uniquely, the group’s entire repertoire is edited from manuscript or contemporary sources, and it has been praised for “its glorious and all-too-rare ability to make one’s pulse race afresh with every new project” (Gramophone). On ‘Vivaldi x2,’ La Serenissima performs seven foot-tapping double concertos by Vivaldi, featuring horns, oboes, bassoon, violin, and cello. Virtuosic thrills abound in some of Vivaldi’s most colorful and exuberant works.
