Fiori Musicali work very hard to give you a great repertoire of beautiful baroque and classical music near you. I wanted to learn more about the players who regularly make up Fiori Musicali and what makes them tick.
For a sneak peak behind the scenes of Fiori Musicali I decided to start a series of short interviews with the people who make up Fiori. This post we hear from Hungarian Soprano extra-ordinaire Judit Felszeghy.
Is there a misconception about classical music? It seems to me that the general public thinks that it's old fashioned or enjoyed only by older, posh people.
It's that time of year where the summer's drawing to a close. But suspend your dismay, summer is still in full swing! As you know, it's Fiori's 30th birthday. There have been some gorgeous summer performances to mark the occasion and the celebrations continue next month.
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.
Considering I’m ‘Fiori Fan’, it's pretty bad that I’ve not seen Fiori Musicali play live despite them being local. So I put that to rights on Thursday when I took a nice drive over Bilton Grange, a lovely old school in Dunchurch, Warwickshire. Friendly greeting from Fiori Musical at Bilton GrangeI was greeted by a grand building and some friendly students who eagerly opened the door for me - a great first impression. Service with a smile!
Claire Babington is an expert cellist performing with Fiori on Sunday so being a nosey soul, I thought that I’d have a chat with her and give you the low down on this exciting young artist.
