‹ Back to What's On I Fagiolini

29 Mar 2018

Piatto misto

British vocal ensemble I Fagiolini provide a passionate Easter offering with a varied programme revolving around the themes of love and loss.

One of the UK’s most highly regarded vocal groups, they inject ‘vitality, freshness and immediacy’ (The Telegraph) into pieces old and new.

Including Monteverdi’s moving Lagrime d’amante al sepolcro dell’amata, Thomas Ravenscroft’s There were three Ravens, Britten’s tour de force settings of medieval texts and a new commission, Sonnet by Adrian Williams, expect ‘bags of style, energy and dramatic excitement’ (International Record Review) as they bring these masterpieces to life.

Claudio Monteverdi Lagrime d'amante al sepolcro dell'amata
Thomas Ravenscroft There were three ravens
Thomas Tomkins Too much I once lamented
Clément Janequin La Chasse
Benjamin Britten Eight medieval lyrics, sacred and profane
Cathy Berberian Stripsody
Janet Wheeler Music to Hear
William Brooks Oooh Will
Adrian Williams Sonnet (new commission)

There is nothing ordinary about a performance by I Fagiolini. These singers have made their reputation by turning their backs on convention.
