Orchestral pioneers La Serenissima and their director Adrian Chandler return to Turner Sims with a magical programme of baroque music. The dissemination of the Italian style throughout Europe during the first half of the eighteenth century was both successful and complete. Vivaldi’s concertos were extremely popular and were imitated by Italians and non-Italians alike; their popularity led to many Italian musicians emigrating north of the Alps. Brescianello settled in Stuttgart, and produced an excellent (if not prolific) collection of concertos and suites that drew on the styles of Italy, Germany, France and England. Sammartini, a Milanese oboe player settled in London where his concerti grossi enjoyed great success alongside those of Handel; his concerto for recorder is one of only a few examples to survive in addition to those by Vivaldi.
