    Few who were at the closing concert of the 2015 Festival will forget the thrilling performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons given by Adrian Chandler and his colleagues from La Serenissima. For their return visit to Petworth they concentrate on further extraordinary riches produced by Italian composers from the late baroque period – Vivaldi, Caldara, Tartini and Brescianello.

    Vivaldi and Tartini were at the top of the league producing copious amounts of virtuosic violin repertoire for both themselves and their pupils; Vivaldi taught at the prestigious Ospedale della Pietà in Venice, Tartini at his Scuola delle Nazioni in Padua. Caldara by contrast was more of a vocal music specialist, whilst Brescianello spent much of his musical life in the princely courts of Germany.

    Vivaldi Concerto for violin, cello, strings & continuo in B flat, RV. 547
    Caldara Overture to La Verità nell’Inganno for strings & continuo
