Extra Time

Extra Time (Album)

‘Adrian Chandler and La Serenissima have had a run of snappy album titles in recent years – ‘The Italian Job’, ‘The Godfather’, ‘Vivaldi x2’ – yet this one does feel especially well tuned. Its starting point was a concerto captured on the spur of the moment in 2015, when all the music for their 2016 Gramophone Awards-shortlisted Vivaldi Four Seasons had been recorded 25 minutes ahead of schedule … Fast-forward to the present day, and the good news is that ‘Extra Time’ is bristling with all the elegantly zesty joie de vivre familiar from those previous albums … The engineering is as consistent as the music-making is top-drawer and joyous.’

Charlotte Gardner, Gramophone, October 2020
