Adrian Chandler returns to where it all began. Per Monsieur Pisendel (AV 0018) was the debut album by the Vivaldi enthusiast released on AVIE in 2003, launching a recording career that has earned international plaudits, awards, chart-topping albums and recognition as one of the world’s leading authorities on the music of Vivaldi and his Italian baroque contemporaries. Per Monsieur Pisendel 2 brings together works by the dazzling German violinist’s teachers Antonio Montanari and the Red Priest, the last “Pisendel” sonata by Albinoni, and two sonatas by the Saxon himself, including the fiendish unaccompanied sonata which inspired Bach to compose his six similarly-scored works. Shining through Adrian’s erudition is stellar music performed with laser beam precision.
