An Englishman Abroad

La Serenissima explore Carolean music, written for Charles II of England and Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI by Matteis the Younger, Telemann, Vivaldi, Purcell, Brescianello and collaborations between Matteis and Caldara.

Born in London, Italian Baroque violinist Matteis was surrounded by the music of Henry Purcell before leaving for the Imperial Court in Vienna in 1700. Matteis began life in Vienna as a violinist, later writing music for Charles VI.

La Serenissima dedicate themselves to Italian Baroque Music with careful attention to detail, working exclusively from their own performing editions. With a particular focus on Vivaldi, La Serenissima also explore connections between Venetian composers, Northern Italy and the world, along the way discovering and exposing forgotten composers such as Brescianello.
