La Serenissima presents a post-lockdown recording of the little-known 18th Century Italian composer, Brescianello. A contemporary of Vivaldi, Brescianello is a composer whose music languishes in relative obscurity.

Whilst the mists of time have claimed some composers’ music for justifiable reasons, Brescianello’s music presents many compelling arguments for its restoration. Having first included Brescianello in La Serenissima’s 2014 season, they have since staged his opera Tisbe, recorded a violin concerto, a trio sonata and other works.

It is surprising that the Opus 1 was the only set of works that Brescianello chose to publish and, thanks to the pandemic, La Serenissima have now been given the opportunity to start their exploration of this wonderful publication.

La Serenissima is recognised as the UK’s leading exponent of the music of 18th Century Venice and connected composers. Uniquely, the group’s entire repertoire is edited from source material, and they have been praised for their “glorious and all-too-rare ability to make one’s pulse race afresh with every new project” (Gramophone).

La Serenissima have become synonymous with virtuosity, dynamism and accessibility, uncovering a plethora of new repertoire and making it available to all through live performance, high calibre recording work, education and outreach initiatives.
