A widely acclaimed British vocal ensemble with a contemporary twist on Renaissance classics.
I Fagiolini, which specializes in renaissance and contemporary music, has since its start in 1986 built up a solid international reputation. The ensemble has been awarded several prizes at home and abroad, and has so far published nineteen albums.
In this concert, the group will present a number of works by Claudio Monteverdi – a composer, gambist and singer at the time of the transition between renaissance and baroque. He became very famous even in his own time, and is now considered to be one of the great composers in European music history.
The ensemble will also perform works by the Flemish composer Josquin des Prez whose extensive style set the standard for church music in the 16th century. He has been an object of interest for many researchers because they have been unable to determine exactly when he was born. I Fagiolini will now immerse itself in the music of this legendary musician.
This evening you will experience world class choral art!
