Following on from their first complete album of Brescianello, Behind Closed Doors, La Serenissima present a world premiere recording of his Overture-Suite for strings & continuo in D alongside Italian Baroque masters with their new album Forza Azzurri! They are joined by recorder player Tabea Debus for two recorder concertos (Sammartini and Vivaldi) and showcase lesser-known, but equally worthy, composers Zavateri and Dall’Abaco. A feast of lesser-known Italian Baroque instrumental music, Forza Azzurri! is possibly their most bangin’ recording yet!
This album was generously supported by Continuo Foundation and the Arts Council England Culture Recovery Fund. Recorded in Cedars Hall, Wells Cathedral School, Somerset UK from 2nd to 4th June 2021 & 14th & 16th February 2022
