Adrian Chandler OSI

Born on Merseyside in 1974, Adrian Chandler is recognised internationally as a leading interpreter of Italian baroque music with an ‘avant-garde approach that would have awed Hendrix’ (The Guardian). Adrian founded La Serenissima in 1994, channelling his love affair with Vivaldi into a lifetime’s mission. He has performed and directed a host of recitals, concertos and operas for major festivals and his performances have been broadcast by radio stations throughout the world.
Through his research Adrian has created an extensive catalogue of music by Italian baroque composers from Ariosti to Zavateri. During the 2020 UK lockdown, he edited a Vivaldi violin concerto daily reaching fans, musicians and scholars across the globe via social media. Adrian regularly guest-directs concerts abroad, including recent projects for Concerto Copenhagen and Deutsche Philharmonie Merck. He was awarded the honour of ‘Cavaliere’ of the Order of the Star of Italy for his services to Italian baroque music in 2022.
