“The Italian Job’ has all their [La Serenissima’s] hallmarks: a fresh, zinging tone alive with vitality and enjoyment, an effortless easy panache from both ensemble and soloists, and the whole underpinned by a scholarly attittude to programming and performance style which is yet worn with a light grace.” Gramophone Winner of the Baroque Award 2017
