Extra Time

Extra Time

This album began life during recording sessions for our 2015 album Vivaldi The Four Seasons. Always keen to use every minute of recording time available, La Serenissima delivered a performance of Vivaldi’s S. Lorenzo concerto in a record 25 minutes – sparking the idea for a new collection of recordings, made over four years during ‘extra time’. The cover shows featured composers adorning shirts from Everton Football Club – Adrian Chandler’s ‘home’ team.
