I Fagiolini

I FAGIOLINI was founded in 1986 while the singers were students at Oxford University. In 1988 the group won the UK Early Music Network’s Young Artists’ Competition and has since released twelve CDs and a DVD. It gives about 50 concerts a year from the BBC Proms and major European festivals to further afield such as the Far East and both ends of Africa. Its unusual name has been misspelt, mispronounced and (fortunately) misunderstood throughout the world. I Fagiolini’s core repertoire is Renaissance and contemporary solo-voice ensemble repertoire. In recent years it has pioneered innovative staged presentations with a project called The Theatre of Music, which bring classics of Renaissance secular music to life. This project has been a huge success with promoters and audiences, and examples can be seen on the promotional CD-ROM/video (2001) and also the Chandos DVD (2004).
