About

Fieri Consort launches its debut album, Tears of a Lover, featuring madrigals by Marenzio and Monteverdi and a new work by contemporary composer Ben Rowarth.

Founded in 2012, Fieri Consort has evolved into one of the United Kingdom’s most exciting young vocal groups, offering a unique blend of technical precision and theatrical innovation.

Performing without a conductor, Fieri presents innovative and engaging programmes, and specialises in the rich and varied tradition of 16th- and 17th-century Italian repertoire. Performing a cappella, accompanied by early instruments, with guests and even, memorably, with members of their audiences, Fieri’s interpretations are always ingenious and informed by the collective experience and knowledge of the group.

Reviews

Exquisite blend quickly emerges as a touchstone for the intense programme, established and encapsulated in the opening statement of Monteverdi’s duet Interrotte speranze as Aileen Henry’s Renaissance harp breaks all hope, leaving Josh Cooter and Tom Kelly to resign themselves to eternal damnation. ... The startling chromaticism and momentum of the Ingegneri and Marenzio works shines through to complete this accomplished recital – a reflection not only of Monteverdi, mortality and magnitudes, but of a group that gives some of the best in the business a run for their scudi.  Hannah French (Choral & Song Choice)
