I Fagiolini is a British solo-voice ensemble specialising in Renaissance and contemporary music. It has released 19 CDs and 3 DVDs including the world premiere recording of the Striggio 40-part mass which won the Gramophone and Diapason early music awards in 2011.
Prince Carlo Gesualdo was one of the most intriguing composers of the late Renaissance. His private life, bizarre behaviour and the planned double-murder of his wife and her lover have added to this allure. I Fagiolini and director John La Bouchardière have created ‘Betrayal: A Polyphonic Crime Drama’ – a site-specific evening of love, intrigue and chilling secrets as the long-awaited follow up to their successful collaboration The Full Monteverdi. It premiered for the Barbican Centre and is now available to promoters.
