Purbeck Art Week: The Madrigal Reimagined
Monteverdi String Band with Hannah Ely
The Monteverdi String Band is dedicated to celebrating the sound and style of the early violin consort. Our instruments and bows are modelled on originals from the early decades of the seventeenth century, lending the ensemble a rich, grounded and blended tone. Our programming draws on early seventeenth-century Italy. 2020-21 saw the creation of smaller-scale projects: Con Arte e Maestria was released on Resonus Classics in summer 2021 and Gramophone described it as ‘an intensely perfumed performance: beguiling then joyful, simple then suave’.
Hannah Ely is a soprano and pianist from Swanage now based in Brussels. She received her Bachelor of Music at the University of Manchester before completing a post-graduate diploma in piano at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London. She studied Advanced Vocal Ensemble Studies in Switzerland at Schola Cantorum, Basel, has worked with The Sixteen, The Tallis Scholars, Stile Antico and the BBC Singers and continues to work for ensembles around Europe, including Collegium Vocale Gent and Huelgas Ensemble. She is a founder member and manager of Fieri Consort.
