Notes & Reviews:

Adrian Chandler returns to where it all began. Per Monsieur Pisendel (AVR 18) was the debut album released by the Vivaldi enthusiast on AVIE in 2003, launching a recording career that has earned international plaudits, awards, and recognition as one of the world's leading authorities on the music of Vivaldi and his Italian baroque contemporaries. Per Monsieur Pisendel 2 brings together works by the dazzling German violinist's teachers Antonio Montanari and the Red Priest, the last "Pisendel" sonata by Albinoni, and two sonatas by the Saxon himself, including the fiendish unaccompanied sonata which inspired Bach to compose his six similarly-scored works. Shining through Adrian's erudition is stellar music performed with laser beam precision.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2014
Most remarkable of all is the Sonata in A minor, a truly virtuoso piece which is said, not without justification, to have inspired Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin. It is given here in a quite breathtakingly effective performance by Adrian Chandler, whose effortless and stylish command of the writing brings Pisendel's legendary fully alive.

Sunday Times, 17th August 2014
With his sumptuous and brilliant readings of two sonatas - one unaccompanied, the other supported by his excellent continuo team - the baroque violinist Chandler demonstrates again the justness of his devotion to the cause of Johann Georg Pisendel.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
This is the second volume in a series of recordings of violin music either written by the great Bavarian violinist Johann Georg Pisendel (1687-1775) or dedicated to him by his teachers and admirers. The series is called 'Per Monsieur Pisendel', and the larger ensemble connected with this series is La Serenissima. There is a great deal to admire in this recording. The musicians use copies of 17thand 18th Century instruments, but they play at modern pitch (A=440), which sounds refreshing to me. The continuo realizations are very creative, and the theorbo adds great substance to the bass and a lot of buoyancy and texture to the treble. These musicians use organ rather than harpsichord in the Montarnari sonata.
