Brescianello is a very special discovery for La Serenissima. We know little about his life, but his music is of outstanding quality, reflecting pan-European influences. We chose to record part of his Opus 1 in October 2020 - the first time in over 7 months that La Serenissima was able to play together since the UK lockdown in March. We now look to followers to support the post-production work needed to release the first album of the project & in doing so, help us to reconnect with our audiences.

Brescianello wrote outstanding music and yet he is an 'unknown' composer. Very few works have been performed in modern times & there are precious few recordings of his music of any quality in circulation. Without high-calibre advocates for his music, his chance of reaching new audiences is limited. In addition, La Serenissima faces huge obstacles to live performance since the Covid-19 crisis. Recordings look to be the only way to reach audiences & provide employment to artists in 2020/21.


La Serenissima has channelled the beating the heart of Vivaldi's Venice through its mission for over 25 years. Brescianello's Op 1 presents a vibrant insight into his music, with concertos & sinfonias of brilliance and joy. Our material for the first album has now been gathered, bringing our trademark gusto to the works - "the music-making is top-drawer & joyous" Gramophone. In releasing this album, we will start to do for Brescianello what we have done for Vivaldi over many years.

Long-Term Impact

Music enriches life. Italian baroque music embodies some of the most accessible music in the classical canon & Brescianello is no exception to this. In championing his music, La Serenissima aims to trigger a reevaluation of the composer's legacy and give more listeners access to this truly uplifting music. In releasing the first album of Brescianello Op 1, we can start to raise major funding needed to complete the project: this work will help to sustain our artists over the coming months.
