Unearthing the music of Venice,

About Us

La Serenissima is the UK’s most dynamic voice of Italian baroque music. Born in 1994 out of one man's passion for Vivaldi, we bring well-known and neglected music to life through painstaking research, virtuosic performances and down-to-earth dialogue with audiences. Our concerts at home and abroad are recognised for their flair, quality and the way we engage.  Uniquely, we work only from our own performing editions and we produce critically-acclaimed recordings which make our music available to all.

Our Work

We bring to life ‘blockbuster’ works, and champion forgotten music from baroque composers everyone knows about. We have also uncovered an amazing array of repertoire that’s been forgotten or lost by composers most people have never heard of. For more about our ground-breaking research click here.

Upcoming Events


La Serenissima and Adrian Chandler are central to Wigmore Hall’s Early Music and Baroque Series over the next three seasons and beyond. The group’s talent for exploring unjustly neglected repertoire, as well as an ability to uncover new insights into more familiar works, makes it one of the most vibrant early music ensembles in Europe today.
