Oxford Chamber Music Society: Music from the Italian States

November 3 | 3:00 pm 5:00 pm

Concerti for strings by Durante, Facco, Gnocchi, Valentini & Vivaldi.

We travel the length and breadth of Italy highlighting the superb quality of music to be found in musical centres both great and small.

Recognised for “whipping up a storm with Vivaldi”, La Serenissima is “one of Britain’s best-loved chamber orchestras” (The Telegraph) known for championing a host of neglected Italian Baroque composers and outstanding performances.

The group plays to a global audience of millions, with 1.3m monthly listeners on Spotify alone and regularly features on international radio, advertising and film.
