In 1984, a 10-year-old child in Merseyside listened to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons on the radio for the very first time… This encounter resulted in a lifetime’s dedication to the music of 18th-century Venice for violinist Adrian Chandler and the birth of La Serenissima: a world-class ensemble bringing life-affirming Italian baroque music to a global audience.
La Serenissima takes its name from Venice, the magical North Italian city of winding canals and elegant bridges, traditionally known as the Most Serene Republic of Venice.
