“Most serene” is what they called Venice, but there’s nothing placid about this celebration of Vivaldi, performed by an award-winning period instrument ensemble under its founder-director Adrian Chandler. “A pure and simple case of exemplary Baroque ‘n roll” declared one critic. “La Serenissima nailed absolutely every single piece – and, for that matter, every single note – they played.”
