Purcell?s The Fairy Queen is based on Shakespeare?s A Midsummer Night?s Dream, a play not frequently performed in the late 17th century, nor very well regarded (?the most insipid ridiculous play that ever I saw in my life? - Samuel Pepys? diary, 1662). Despite this, the play would go on to work well within an opera, as the characters of Pyramus and Thisbe could conjure up singing and dancing accomplices. Purcell?s masterful composition, Gabrieli?s first-class performance, and McCreesh?s superb interpretation demonstrate why their recordings are seen as some of the best in classical music today. Gabrieli are world-renowned interpreters of great vocal and instrumental repertoire, from the Renaissance to the present day. Founded by Paul McCreesh in 1982, Gabrieli have both outgrown and remained true to their original identity: whilst the ensemble?s repertoire has expanded beyond any expectation, McCreesh?s ever-questioning spirit, expressive musicianship and a healthy degree of iconoclasm remain constant and are reflected in the ensemble?s dynamic performances. Gabrieli?s repertoire includes major works of the oratorio tradition, virtuosic a cappella programmes and mold-breaking reconstructions of music for historical events. Above all, Gabrieli aims to create thought-provoking performances which stand out from the crowd.
