Adrian Chandler and La Serenissima, winners of 2010’s Gramophone Award in the Baroque Instrumental category for Vivaldi: The French Connection (AV2178), present the sequel, The French Connection 2, which features the world-premiere recording of Il Gran mogul, the lost Vivaldi Flute Concerto recently rediscovered in the National Archives of Scotland.

Unearthing of the score – which has been authenticated by the world’s leading Vivaldi scholars – made international, mainstream news and this first recording, by today’s leading exponents of the music of Vivaldi, is eagerly anticipated. The album contains nine concertos in all, including another premiere of a recently discovered Violin Concerto.

The French Connection enjoyed success on both sides of the pond, with a Top 3 Billboard Classical Chart position and nationwide airplay in the US as well as the UK.
