Rondò Veneziano is a famous Italian chamber orchestra incorporating a rock-style rhythm section of synthesizer, bass guitar and drums, directed by Maestro Gian Piero Reverberi. It has produced as of 2005 26 musical albums, almost one for each year since its founding in 1979.
The group is noted for playing original compositions as well as classical and baroque repertoire.
A version of La Serenissima (Theme From 'Venice In Peril) was released in the UK as a single and reached number 58 in the UK charts in October 1983. The track was also widely used at that time by ITV Television, as a backing for some of its programme trailers.
In 1985, they provided the score for the movie Not Quite Jerusalem (known as Not Quite Paradise in the USA).
