2010 Gramophone Award Winner: Best Baroque Instrumental
Following the three releases in the acclaimed series ‘The Rise of the North Italian Violin Concerto’, Adrian Chandler and La Serenissima explore the Red Priest’s fascination with the goût français.
The voracity with which the French devoured Italian music during the late baroque period is well documented. Vivaldi was involved in both the dissemination of the French style in Italy and that of the Italian style in France. His works achieved fashionable status there in the late 1720s thanks to his concertos Le Quattro Stagioni which became a feature at the popular Concert Spirituel (between 1728 and 1763).
