About l Fagiolini
Grounded in the classics of Renaissance and Twentieth-century vocal repertoire, l Fagiolini is renowned for its innovative and often staged productions of this music. It has staged Handel with masks, Purcell with puppets, and in 2004 premiered The Full Monteverdi, a ground-breaking dramatized account of the composer’s Fourth Book of Madrigals (1603) by John La Bouchardière, since turned into a highly successful film shown all over the world. In 2006 l Fagiolini toured its South African collaboration Simunye and in 2009 created Tallis in Wonderland, a new way of hearing polyphony with live and recorded voices.
l Fagiolini are currently working on a year long celebration of Monteverdi’s 450th anniversary, Living Monteverdi and have sold out their performance for this year’s BBC proms in under 2 hours.
