La Serenissima

Vivaldi Mandolin Concerto

Adrian Chandler (violin) & Raffaele La Ragione (mandolin)
Vivaldi Mandolin Concerto

Vivaldi was a violinist without equal, but baroque Venice hosted superstar performers on every type of instrument, and he never failed to rise to the challenge. Today, La Serenissima is joined by the mandolin virtuoso Raffaele La Ragione – an artist with a deep affinity for the Italian baroque, in whose hands the mandolin can weep, sing, dance and (of course) laugh. Naturally, Vivaldi’s Mandolin Concerto is the centrepiece of tonight’s concert, but when La Serenissima takes the stage, all bets are off. Expect an evening filled with 18th century surprises and delights, from show stopping musical fireworks to heartfelt Italian melody.
