‘It don't mean a thing’

I Fagiolini’s 25th birthday cocktail

Despite the constant label ‘innovative young ensemble’ this year I Fagiolini celebrates its silver jubilee. The only early music ensemble ever to win the Royal Philharmonic’s Ensemble prize (2005), they are as at home with contemporary as with Renaissance music. Their brand has become synonymous with thoughtprovoking and unusual productions, from Tallis in Wonderland and The Full Monteverdi to their masked L’Amfiparnoso and contemporary (unconducted) opera The Birds. This festive 25th anniversary programme presents them in a peerless Monteverdi madrigal cycle, ravishing Milhaud and a special new work from Orlando Gough.
