Insalata


METRONOME  / 1994


A rich salad from Monteverdi to Sondheim, typical of the mix I Fagiolini served up to their audiences back in the 90s.


Interestingly, the group didn't work on a core sound: that depended entirely on the repertoire.  So Gombert, Da Flecha, Monteverdi (Matthew Brook’s powerful account of ‘Audi coelum’ from the 1610 Vespers), Bach, Purcell (early Robin Blaze), Debussy and William Brooks’ infamous Madrigal No.4 ‘Nellie was a lady’ belong to very different soundworlds.
