I Fagiolini is a British solo-voice ensemble specialising in Renaissance and contemporary music. It has released 19 CDs and 2 DVDs including the world premiere recording of the Striggio 40-part mass which won the Gramophone and Diapason early music awards in 2011.
I Fagiolini’s ground-breaking collaboration with Australian contemporary circus company Circa is half way through the 2013 tour. After sell-out shows in Brighton and Norwich, the production is visiting Salisbury Cathedral (for Salisbury International Arts Festival) and London (St Bartholomew the Great) in June. There are a few tickets still left for Salisbury.
A DVD interpretation of How Like An Angel, made by Polyphonic Films, has just been released. As well as the film of the show, there is also a behind-the-scenes documentary, and an exclusive directors’ commentary with Robert Hollingworth and Yaron Lifschitz. The DVD is available at the remaining tour performances, or from Amazon
On Saturday 29 June, as part of the Clifton Festival, I Fagiolini will be the guest soloists in a performance of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610, conducted by John Gibbons. More details on the Clifton Festival website
