I Fagiolini are currently celebrating their 20 year anniversary. Many happy returns from the TFM blog, may the next 20 years be as inspirational as the last.

“It was in early October 1986 that I Fagiolini first rehearsed together in the Song Room at New College, Oxford. Schütz, Monteverdi and Janequin were on the menu and the audience was a wide range of students from different disciplines. It was clear that this ensemble aimed to get to the heart of the various styles but was also committed to making it work for the widest possible audience. The years since have only reaffirmed that aim.”

Anniversary concerts are at London’s Wigmore Hall (4/10/06), Durham (27/10/06) and Oxford (9/11/06) see for more information.

20? I feel 105 now. How long are we going to be described as ‘that innovative young ensemble’? Have to keep bringing in the young ones. Sammy [Nicholas Mulroy – tenor] pointed out to the audience at the Wigmore gig that he was 9 when we started up. Git.
