I Fagiolini – ‘Au Naturel’

Friday, 18 June at 6 pm & 8 pm

Pieter Brueghel the Younger’s wonderful four images ‘The Seasons’ are the starting place for this musical journey through the passing of the year. Monteverdi’s ‘Springtime of love’ alongside Howells’ rhapsodic ‘The Summer is coming’; Schütz’s jaunty ‘The Heavens are telling’ and autumn seen through Rheinberger’s little classic ‘Abendlied’ (as well as a French jazz number – ‘Chanson d’automne’). Winter starts with De Wert’s graphic storm scene (‘Ascendente Iesu’) but also Banchieri’s honking cats and dogs for carnival (just before Lent). The whole is topped off with Janequin’s sound effect maelstrom, ‘La Chasse’.
