I Fagiolini regularly commissions new works and is thrilled to find that its collaboration, Le Molière Imaginaire, with words by Timothy Knapman and music by Andrew Schulz, commissioned for the group's debut tour of Australia by Musica Viva Australia, has won Vocal/Choral Work of the Year in the APRA AMCOS Art Music Awards 2016. The work is based on the final scene of Molière Le Malade Imaginaire and was premiered by the group in Newcastle, Australia in July 2015.
