Notes & Reviews:

2010 Gramophone Award winners Adrian Chandler and La Serenissima present The French Connection 2 featuring the world premiere recording of "Il Gran Mogol," the lost Vivaldi Flute Concerto recently rediscovered in the National Archives of Scotland. The album also contains eight varied concertos by Vivaldi, including another world premiere recording of a Violin Concerto.

"They play ... with the effortless musicality of birds." - The Independent

BBC Music Magazine
Chandler has put together a fascinating programme among which are some rarities including two 'world premiere recordings'...Katy Bircher and Chandler himself are the respective soloists [in RV431a] and their warm-sounding, eloquently stylish playing is a constant delight.

Classic FM Magazine
Chandler's tight control gives freedom not constriction. The ensemble is spotless even on the whipping string flourishes of Paris Concerto No. 2 Every detail has meaning.

Gramophone Magazine
Chandler counts further success with a second volume of concertos whose gallicisms range from patrons to genuine style-imprints, to the provenance of the original manuscript paper...La Serenissima remain buoyant and sweet, eschewing the taut, opaque sound of many of today's Baroque orchestras, and embracing something more relaxed and open, helped by a pleasing bloom.

Sunday Times
Another intriguing, excellently packaged and delivered volume in Chandler's Vivaldi series. He is as much scholar as performer, and his notes offer useful background about the musical exchanges between France and Italy...The playing is beautifully articulated, with first-class work from the soloists.
