Fiori Musicali News


Fiori are honoured to have been invited to join forces with CHOIR OF THE EARTH in a project that they are embarking on to record the Monteverdi’s Marian Vespers of 1610.  Founded by Mark Strachan (who was awarded the British Empire Medal in the 2022 Queen’s New Year’s Honours List for services to musicians), CHOIR OF THE EARTH are a unique choir, drawing together singers from all corners of the world to perform and record glorious choral works under the expert tuition of their artistic director Ben England (who was awarded the British Empire Medal in 2021 by the Queen in recognition of his services to choral singing during the pandemic).

On the occasion of Fiori Musicali’s performance of their ‘Vivaldi’s Venice’ at Bilton Grange Chapel, I thought I’d have a chat with one of the main instrumentalists of the evening, Heidi Fardell. Heidi’s instrument is quite familiar for many of us. It’s often the first experience that we have playing music. ‘London’s Burning’ might give you a clue.
