Sérénade (Op. 83)

Parish Alvars spent the winter of 1843-1844 in Naples, and his impressions of the ambience and the typical sights and sounds of that vibrant Mediterranean city are reflected in the series of three pieces he composed there. The Serenade (op. 83) and the brilliant Grand Study in imitation of the Mandoline (op.84) both of which are well known and have figured in the Adlais catalogue for many years. In 2008 Adlais added the genuinely amusing Souvenir of Naples – Il Papagallo (op.85) with its witty characterisation of a pet Neapolitan parrot to the catalogue.
