Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
This exploration of early-18th-century Venice functions cleverly on several levels. Time-travelling grand tourists are invited to spend an imaginary evening travelling around La Serenissima's diverse musical attractions...and sensing some of the different types of public music the city has to offer...Peter Whelan's feats of technical agility are astonishing.

Adrian Chandler and La Serenissima's 10th release for Avie - coinciding with the label's 10th anniversary - has all the hallmarks that have made the Vivaldi specialists one of the best-selling and acclaimed period-instrument bands performing today. As with the chart-topping French Connection 2 (AVR 2218), which featured the world-premiere recording of the flute concerto "Il Gran Mogol," Adrian has once again unearthed numerous works from this period, recorded for the first time.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
This is an outstanding program, beautifully performed, with great sound and exceptionally detailed and thorough notes. I look forward to more in this series.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2012
A delightful vignette of 18th-century Venetian nightlife...Lawson is, in turn, a gondola-borne singer...equally at home in the simplest syllabic songs, genlte cantabile and, at the end, a sparkling Vivaldi duet di agilita with trumpet. Peter Whelan is a virtuoso bassoonist...Simon Munday proves an impeccable trumpeter...With five 'first recordings', this is not to be missed.
