Sparkling music for recorders, curtal (the early bassoon) and harpsichord, by Monteverdi and his Venetian contemporaries. Sulgrave Manor (home to George Washington’s ancestors) welcomes Fiori to perform music from 17th-century Venice, with whizz recorder players Heidi Fardell and Olwen Foulkes.

A specialist recorder tutor at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance Junior Department, Heidi Fardell has performed at Kensington Palace, the Royal Festival Hall, Handel House Museum, Tate Britain and the National Gallery and is a popular performer with Fiori Musicali.

Olwen Foulkes , a young artist on the Handel House Talent Scheme, is currently recording her first solo CD, to be released on Barn Cottage Records later this year. She has performed with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, La Serenissima, Oxford Bach Soloists and Hampstead Garden Opera.

Sally Holman, winner of the 2001 International Early Music Network Young Artists’ Competition, performs with many of the leading period instrument ensembles in England and Holland and has appeared at the South Bank Early Music Festival, Spitalfields Festival and York Early Music Festival.

PLUS – Optional buffet reception before the concert.
