18th-19th June
VIVALDI’S VENICE – Fiori Musicali

Two stunning concerts on the 18th and 19th June featuring members of early music orchestra Fiori Musicali. On the evenings of Friday 18th and Saturday 19th June, enjoy Vivaldi’s Venice in the atmospheric surroundings of the Edwardian Carriage House.

For these concerts on 18 and 19 June Fiori Musicali are delighted to have joining them charismatic Catalan flautist Eva Caballero, a magical player originally from Barcelona.

Eva, a popular member of Fiori Musicali, also performs with many of the country’s finest ensembles, including The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, English Baroque Soloists, The Sixteen, and Gabrieli Consort & Players.

Two opportunities to hear her live at Lamport as she joins Fiori in a sparkling programme of chamber concertos from Vivaldi’s Venice.

Vivaldi Cello Sonata no.4 in E minor
Vivaldi Trio Sonata no.12 La folia
Vivaldi Chamber Concerto RV106 in G minor

This delightful evening begins with an opportunity to explore the wonderful gardens at Lamport. Doors open at 6pm allowing time for you to order from the champagne bar or pre-order an optional delectable picnic hamper to be consumed in the gardens before the concert begins. So why not indulge? At 7:30pm the spectacular music in the Carriage House begins; the perfect end to a delightful summer evening.

The British period instrument orchestra FIORI MUSICALI are one of the main providers of classical and early music concerts outside London. Founded by director Dr Penelope Rapson, Fiori have earned a reputation for bringing first class music to thousands of music lovers annually across the region and showcasing some of today’s finest professional baroque specialists. Fiori appear in many formats – as a chamber ensemble, as a choir and as a nationally recognised orchestra – always capturing something of how the music first sounded, in concerts from the late renaissance to the early romantic and beyond.

Fiori have a number of acclaimed CDs, including first performances in modern times of music hidden away in archives for centuries. Their new Tallis CD was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on Boxing Day and received high praise from Jeremy Summerly on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review.
