The Tung: Music from the Italian States

October 13 | 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

Concerti for strings by Brescianello, Corelli, Durante, Facco, Gnocchi and Vivaldi.

Adrian Chandler returns to Liverpool, his home city, with La Serenissima in a programme that travels 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.

Thanks to Continuo Foundation for supporting this concert.
