English premiere of lost Vivaldi concerto

Gramophone Award winners La Serenissima will be performing Vivaldi’s Il Gran Mogol in its English premiere at the apex, Bury St Edmunds’ new music and entertainment venue, on Thursday 27 January 2011.


Il Gran Mogol was recently discovered by University of Southampton Research Fellow, Andrew Woolley, in the National Archives of Scotland in Edinburgh, and has been authenticated as the work of the famous 18th century composer Vivaldi.

It is unclear how exactly the concerto came to be in Scotland, but it is believed the manuscript was the property of the flute-playing nobleman Lord Robert Kerr, son of the 3rd Marquess of Lothian, and that he may have acquired it on a Grand Tour of Europe in the early 1700s.  

Il Gran Mogol belonged to a quartet of ‘national’ concertos – the others, titled La Francia, La Spagna and L’Inghilterro, remain lost.

The programme also includes the ever popular Four Seasons. La Serenissima is well-established both nationally and internationally as one of the leading performers of the music of Vivaldi.
