“For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth and the time of the singing of birds is come.”
…..time to investigate the delights in store in Fiori’s new 2013 concert season.
First off we are delighted to announce our collaboration with NMPAT (the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust.) Over the next week or so, key musicians from Fiori Musicali are working with young string players across South and West Northamptonshire, preparing these gifted youngsters to play alongside the Fiori Chamber Orchestra in concert.
This is all leading up to a grand joint concert in Towcester on 2 March, when NMPAT’s young musicians will get to experience the sound world of Vivaldi and Corelli at first hand, and feel what it is like to be part of a baroque orchestra. The project is being supported by South Northamptonshire Council in partnership with Orchestras Live and is all part of Fiori’s mission to bring the best of professional baroque music to as many people as possible.
And of course Fiori’s soloists will be there to inspire, performing Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto no.6, as well as two of Vivaldi’s scintillating virtuoso concertos for two cellos and strings.
And there are more joint ventures afoot. Fiori’s residency at the Castle Theatre, Wellingborough continues. We have a lunchtime concert of Vivaldi chamber concertos there on 15 March, featuring Gail Hennessy oboe, Mike Brain bassoon and popular young recorder player Heidi Fardell.
One particularly special musician Fiori are supporting this year is the young Latvian prize-winning pianist Mihkel Poll. Mihkel’s accolades include winning the Guildhall Wigmore Recital Prize, and we are delighted to welcome him to perform at Fawsley Hall in one of our celebrity recital concerts. Mihkel’s piano recital of Mozart Chopin and Brahms takes place at Fawsley Hall on St Patrick’s Day, 17 March.
Then on Good Friday – 29 March – Fiori mark the approach of Easter with beautiful sacred choral music, including Allegri’s much loved Miserere – in a concert that launches Fiori’s residency at the National Trust, Canons Ashby.
