I Fagiolini
Robert Hollingsworth Director

I Fagiolini is internationally renowned for its genuinely innovative productions. Signature projects have included The Full Monteverdi by John La Bouchardière; Tallis in Wonderland, a new way of hearing polyphony with live and recorded voices; Simunye, the South African collaboration; How Like An Angel (HLAA), with Australian contemporary circus company C!RCA for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad and performed at the Perth International Arts Festival, New York and in cathedrals across Europe; and Betrayal: a polyphonic crime drama (with John La Bouchardière), an immersive theatre piece sung to the music of Gesualdo with dancers and singers set in ‘crime scenes’.

Recent projects include four performances in the VOCES8 Foundation’s online festival series LIVE From London: Monteverdi for which I Fagiolini is renowned (The Ache of Love), Long, Long, Ago – Messe De Minuit a joyous Christmas Eve programme of Charpentier, Howells and Dylan Thomas, Re-Wilding The Waste Land with Tamsin Greig narrating, and Au Naturel. A short series of three films for socially distanced chamber musicians, #NotInThisTogether (Le Zoom, Phone-y Canzone-y, and Cake Mix), and also a weekly educational and outreach series Sing The Score funded by ACE and University of York. New podcast ‘choral chat’ collaboration, Choral Chihuahua, with The Sixteen’s Harry Christophers and Eamonn Dougan has been winning admirers globally.

The group is delighted to be Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of York. I Fagiolini is managed worldwide by Percius.
