Musicians whipping up a fiori at a historic manor

Fiori Musicali
Fiori Musicali

Vivaldi’s music is being performed by Fiori Musicali at Sulgrave Manor.

It will be the music ensemble’s first concert of the year on Sunday January 31.

Dr Penelope Rapson, Fiori’s founder and director says: “It has become quite a tradition for Fiori to begin the season at Sulgrave. Sulgrave Manor is the ancestral home of George Washington’s family – a place full of history! And for this concert Fiori will be bringing alive the historical world of Antonio Vivaldi, performing dazzling music by the composer known as the Red Priest of Venice! ”

Amongst the players on 31 January are Fiori’s principal violinist Kerstin Linder-Dewan, and Amanda Babington, recorder specialist and one of the UK’s leading Handel scholars, as well as the ever-popular cellist Poppy Walshaw who will be introducing audiences to the music of Vandini – one of Vivaldi’s little known Venetian contemporaries.

Penelope added: “Fiori Musicali have a residency at the Manor and this chimes really well with the kind of music we love to play.

Concert begins at 7.30pm. For more information visit www.fiori-musicali.com where tickets can be booked. Tickets cost between £15 and £20.
