Support La Serenissima's new release The Godfather

Summary

La Serenissima aims to bring Italian baroque music to the widest possible audience. New recording The Godfather will present uplifting music from Italians Brescianello and Vivaldi, alongside Italianate works by JS Bach, Telemann and other closely-connected composers. The record will provide new insight into the transfer of musical ideas and will develop La Serenissima's reach by expanding its musical footprint. The project provides opportunities to 23 skilled musicians, including young artists.

Challenge

Classical music has a proven track record in promoting health, wellbeing and intelligence in people of all ages. Baroque music in particular has been shown to enhance sleep quality, lower blood pressure and improve brain function by bridging the right and left sides of the brain. Too often these benefits are inaccessible to people because of a perception that this type of music is niche, elitist or difficult to understand. La Serenissima wants to change this!

Solution

Our new recording The Godfather will bring together shining musical examples from a collection of composers who were interlinked (many of them godfathers to each other's children) from Italy and Germany. The works will highlight the best qualities of music of this type and will be released on an album referencing the iconic gangster film revered by so many. In doing so, we aim to spark engagement from a wide-ranging audience, enabling us to reach new listeners.

Long-Term Impact

The making of The Godfather will significantly develop La Serenissima's recorded legacy, taking in orchestral works by mainstream German composers for the first time. In doing so, the album will renew our connection with followers and stimulate wider engagement with our work. The Godfather will be freely available to listeners via radio-play and streaming outlets, besides physical sales and download making it a powerful way to share uplifting music and its benefits with an audience of millions.
