The musical world of 18th-century Europe was a small one. Despite the problems presented by contemporary standards of transport, it was quite normal for composers in one region to be entirely au fait with developments elsewhere.
Award-winning ensemble La Serenissima celebrate their 25th Anniversary with The Godfather, touring iconic works by Pisendel, Telemann and JS Bach and the Italians that inspired them – with a blazing line-up of strings, wind, trumpets and timpani.
