L'Amore per Elvira represents an exciting new venture between Linn Records and La Serenissima: Vivaldi's Elvira cantatas alongside two (newly reconstructed) 'Graz' sonatas for violin and continuo. Vivaldi's fortyodd cantatas for solo soprano and alto contain some of his finest and most inspired music - output which until recently was relatively unknown. Not long ago the performance of these three cantatas, for example, would have been impossible: Tremori al braccio was discovered as recently as 1999 by Oliver Fourés in Vienna. This disc gives the listener the chance to at last enjoy these great works, superbly performed by La Serenissima. The three cantatas form a story. In Tremori al braccio (RV 799) the lover, (whose name we later learn to be Fileno) trembles at his inability to confess his love to Elvira, only overcoming his reticence in the finale. In the second work Elvira, anima mia (RV 654), Fileno bears the sad tidings to Elvira that he must leave for a while and asks for one last kiss before he leaves. In the final work, Lungi dal vago volto (RV 680), the returning Fileno spies Elvira in the distance and finally reaches her in the happy concluding aria. La Serenissima was formed in 1994 for a performance of Antonio Vivaldi's serenata La Senna festeggiante (RV 693) and ten years later, has firmly established itself as one of the leading exponents of the music of Antonio Vivaldi and his Italian contemporaries. Since the release of its first CD in 2003, La Serenissima has been universally applauded by publications such as Gramophone, the Sunday Times and BBC Music. La Serenissima has appeared at many of the UK's leading festivals including South Bank Early Music Festival, Spitalfields, Warwick, Lichfield and the Beverley Early Music Festivals, York Early Music Festival, Cambridge Summer Music, St George's Bristol and Snape Maltings. They have also appeared in Italy, Germany, Denmark, Belgium and most recently Mexico, performing in Mexico City and the Festival Cervantino (Leon and Guanajuato) to great acclaim. They have performed many times on BBC Radio 3.
