“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 pieces are grouped by the areas of Italy where each composer worked. La Serenissima is recognised as the United Kingdom’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 through live performances, recordings, and educational initiatives.
