Featured Release: An Italian Rant!
AN ITALIAN RANT!
dir. Žak Ozmo
'terrifically animated, wonderful energy… gorgeous!'- BBC Radio 3's CD Review with Andrew McGregor
Italian instrumental music captivated 18th-century Britain with its tunefulness, drama, and sheer beauty. For this project, director Žak Ozmo has handpicked repertoire that allows L’Avventura London to explore a new dimension to several Italian favourites, including works by Corelli, Vivaldi, and Albinoni, and shed light on less known (but equally as beautiful) works by Geminiani and Paradisi. This disc also reveals the talents of neglected composer G. B. Cervetto with a premiere of his marvellous Sonata in G minor.
If you haven’t yet had the chance to hear L’Avventura perform live, this fresh, fun disc is an excellent introduction to the group.
