After my first couple of Fiori concerts it was obvious that there was a gap in my classical and baroque knowledge. I can easily enjoy the music without knowing the technical bits but I rock the geek chic (or I’m just a geek) so I like to know the whys and wherefores.
There’s another excuse to enjoy a relaxed lunchtime recital at The Castle Wellingborough on Friday 9 May! This is the next one in Fiori’s popular series of ‘meet the artist’ recitals, when director Penelope Rapson introduces baroque violinist Amanda Babington (who you may have seen performing at The Castle in March).
Until Sunday 6th July The University of Northampton School of Arts is holding its annual showcase of graduate work in the areas of fashion, footwear, textiles, surface design and fashion marketing at the Northampton Museum and Gallery.
Now what does that have to do with Fiori Musicali you say? I’m glad you asked!
Fiori Musicali have a residency at Canons Ashby which saw them perform at the National Trust several times last week. Every performance there is special but it was even more so this week as it was to celebrate the opening of the newly restored baroque gardens and to commemorate 300 years of baroque composer Corelli.
After the crowds have enjoyed the matinée performance, Fiori bring you an evening concert at The Castle 7:45pm. Once again the Chamber Orchestra are joined by Kerstin Linder-Dewan – solo violin, to bring you a sparkling programme.
