‘I Fagiolini’s consort and solo singing are exemplary.’ Gramophone
‘This is serious musicianship that never takes itself too seriously – the Holy Grail of concert-going’ The Spectator
As the focus on climate change grows, I Fagiolini sings of nature and the passing of the year in a programme inspired by Pieter Brueghel the Younger’s The Seasons, weaving a rich aural tapestry spanning six centuries. From Monteverdi’s springtime of love to Howells’ masterpiece The Summer is Coming, we hear a foot-tapping ode to autumn in Ferré’s 1970s French jazz while Poulenc’s metaphorical winter is the France of World War II. Also included are Renaissance naughty boy Clément Janequin’s two theatrical soundscapes, Song of the birds and The Hunt.
Please note, the original date for this event was Saturday 25 April 2020. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, this event had to be postponed. Read our full statement.
