Andrew Mellor at work in recent recording sessions
We are close to signing off the CD booklet for Brescianello's Op. 1 Vol. 1 and are very excited about the album's forthcoming release this autumn. The album will be entitled 'Behind Closed Doors' and Adrian writes in his sleeve notes:
The title for this recording was inspired by the situation in which many ensembles and musicians found themselves after the arrival of the devastating Coronavirus pandemic in 2020. Countries were locked down; concerts and recordings were cancelled; musicians everywhere were out of work.
The act of documenting the pandemic and the impact it has had on our group was a cathartic one and we are glad to have found a fitting way to acknowledge the challenges of 2020-21 in a lasting format.
You may have noticed that we have increased our funding target now to cover the release costs for Volume 2. This is in anticipation of recording sessions due to take place early in 2022 at Cedars Hall, Wells. In going ahead with the second disc we will be able to create employment for our stellar team of artists and complete a project which means a huge amount to Adrian and the progress of La Serenissima. The second volume will be produced and edited by Andrew Mellor following the departure of Simon Fox-Gal to Greece; Andrew worked on our June recording patch and was fantastic.
If you are able to give further support to this campaign, your help will go a long way to making our project viable. Thank you for your generosity and interest in our work: the music is superb and we are grateful to be able to play together and reach new listeners through Brescianello's Opus 1.
