SELECTED REVIEWS

Monteverdi: The Other Vespers

Released by DECCA Classics

July 2017

--

“Superbly performed . . . there is plenty of warmth and animation in the superb music-making. I Fagiolini's consort and solo singing are exemplary . . . in such sure hands (and throats) as these, Monteverdi's psalm-settings reach their fullest capacity to enchant and astonish”

David Vickers / Gramophone

The Full Monteverdi

Cheltenham Music Festival 

July 2004

--

“Nobody could leave the room without believing they had been privy to some sort of miracle of human endeavour. It was witchcraft.”

--

The Daily Telegraph

L’Orfeo

St John’s Smith Square, London

May 2017

--

“L’Orfeo, superbly performed by I Fagiolini and the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble… was vivid and raw, emotionally intense and musically thrilling. Matthew Long sang Orfeo with pliant tone and urgent expression, as if living every tremor of the musician’s suffering.”

Fiona Maddocks / The Guardian

Striggio: Mass in 40 parts

Released by DECCA Classics

Feb 2011

--

“Beautifully performed by I Fagiolini with soloists and countless continuo parts, the polychoral effects are striking… At the end comes Tallis's more famous 40-part "Spem in alium", done here with instruments... a masterpiece.
