Win 1 of 4 double passes to Musica Viva, performing at the Perth Concert Hall on Monday, 3 August valued at $560.
Sensational English vocal ensemble I Fagiolini is making its debut Australian tour with Musica Viva, performing at the Perth Concert Hall on Monday, 3 August. The performance will have something for everyone, with an entertaining mix of old and new vocal music, tossing early madrigals in with spectacular new works to create a delicious musical salad.
Pronounced Ee fah-joe-LEEnee (‘the little beans’), the group is acclaimed for its fearless performances that demand the utmost from its singers. This is extreme a cappella that ranges from the hyper-real playfulness of Janequin’s sung description of a Renaissance hunting party, to the rich imagery of a Monteverdi madrigal.
Highly respected BBC radio presenter and Director, Robert Hollingworth, leads the singers and audience effortlessly through countries and centuries, and pays tribute to his native Great Britain with Adrian Williams’ extraordinary Hymn to Awe and the exquisite sentiments of Inheritance, which was Herbert Howell’s contribution to the Queen’s coronation. The concert also features a new piece by acclaimed Australian composer Andrew Schultz, especially commissioned for I Fagiolini and Musica Viva by Geoff Stearn.
Lovers of great singing and choral music will welcome making the acquaintance of this superb group! I Fagiolini performs at the Perth Concert Hall, Monday 3 August at 7.30pm. Book today – visit http://www.musicaviva.com.au/ifagiolini
Note: Robert Hollingworth will be presenting a Masterclass at the Music Department, UWA on Sunday, 2 August. For details phone Musica Viva 9284 2808.
