WHY NOW?

The Fieri Consort been given a fantastic fundraising opportunity for our Musica Transalpina recording project. One of our supporters has generously agreed to match every donation we recieve, pound for pound - up to a maximum of £5,000. If you are a UK tax payer, we may also be able to claim gift aid on your donation.

This means that if you donate £100 to this project, it could be worth £225 to Fieri.

A

Fieri’s Musica Transalpina programme explores the power of music to cross borders, revisiting the ancient routes along which music travelled centuries ago. We believe it is more important than ever to focus on music as an enabler of communication, collaboration, and unity, and the lasting impact of Musica Transalpina is an inspirational example of this.

 

THE PROJECT

In London, in the latter half of the 16th Century, Nicholas Yonge published two collections of Italian madrigals with English texts. The first printed collections of Italian madrigals in England, they had a huge influence on English composers of the period, serving as a catalyst for an outpouring of inspired creativity.

The Fieri Consort will present interpretations of heart-wrenchingly beautiful music by some of the most important composers of the time, from the intricately worked madrigals of Luca de Marenzio, whose works appear in Musica Transalpina, to the emotionally charged writing of John Dowland, whose output was impacted so profoundly by the publication. Transcending the boundaries of place and time, this programme delivers heartfelt passion and melancholy to listeners from across the centuries, demonstrating how art can transcend division and enrich our lives, so long as we are willing to listen.
