La Serenissima – Vivaldi: The Four Seasons

Adrian Chandler – violin/director; Peter Whelan – bassoon

This performance of Vivaldi’s popular masterpiece uses a new edition made from parts which are in the hand of the composer’s father, Giovanni Battista; this source, housed in the Henry Watson Library, Manchester, represents the only surviving manuscript version of these pieces. Peter Whelan will perform Vivaldi bassoon concertos and La Serenissima also presents two of Vivaldi’s concertos for ‘prepared violin’, the violin in tromba marina. Adrian Chandler, luthier David Rattray and Vivaldi expert Michael Talbot have teamed up to recreate this curious and loud eighteenth century instrument!

“These are musicians who quite simply love their Vivaldi and their spirit is contagious” – BBC Music Magazine
