Vivaldi Concertos

Catherine Bott talks to the violinist and director of the ensemble La Serenissima, Adrian Chandler, about his recordings of some of Antonio Vivaldi's lesser-known concertos. Vivaldi wrote over five hundred concertos, including many for his own instrument, the violin, along with some for larger and grander ensembles. Adrian Chandler has long been a champion of Vivaldi as a composer, and is keen to demonstrate some of his less popular works in the concerto idiom. The programme will include complete performances of the Concerto for violin, 2 oboes, bassoon, 2 horns and timpani RV562a, and the violin concerto in F major RV292.
