I Fagiolini
Insalata I Fagiolini

Baldwin Auditorium


I Fagiolini, winners of the Royal Philharmonic Society Ensemble Award, are a British vocal ensemble of six singers specializing in dynamic, historically informed performances of renaissance vocal music. Far from ‘stand and deliver’ performers, I Fagiolini invest their concerts with a theatrical style that seeks to capture the spirit of the music.

With a program title that plays on the ensemble’s name and translates as “A Salad of Green Beans,” I Fagiolini present a meal fit for a king at Baldwin Auditorium seasoned with the ensemble’s signature blend of dramatic skill and flawless technique. The program of madrigals, chansons, and ensaladas — songs with mixtures of languages and rhythms, written as entertainments for the Valencian court — had the Guardian raving, “bean salads rarely come as good as this … For all the humor, the program worked beautifully because of the deadly serious musicianship that is I Fagiolini’s gold standard.”
