“outstanding in every respect”
Since its first concert in January 1983 the Schubert Ensemble has established itself as one of the world’s leading exponents of music for piano and strings. The ensemble has performed in over 40 different countries, it has over 80 commissions to its name, has recorded over 30 critically acclaimed CDs and is familiar to British audiences through regular broadcasts on BBC Radio 3. In 1998 the Ensemble’s contribution to British musical life was recognized by the Royal Philharmonic Society when it presented the group with the Best Chamber Ensemble Award, for which it was shortlisted again in 2010.
In the past few years the Ensemble has enjoyed a busy international schedule, with performances in Romania, Norway, Spain, Holland, Bermuda, the UAE and the USA, as well as a first visit to China. The Ensemble has also released recordings for the Chandos label of works by Martinů, Fauré, Enescu and Dvořák, all of which have been widely praised. The Dvořák disc and the most recent of two Enescu discs were chosen as CD of the month by the BBC Music Magazine.
In 2015 the Ensemble performed in Bermuda, the USA, Holland and Italy and gave a two concert Schumann/Fauré series at Wigmore Hall. In March it will record its next CD for Chandos Records, which will be of piano quartets by Saint-Saëns and Chausson. Future performances include a six-concert series of piano quintets at Kings Place, starting in October next year and further visits to Italy and the USA.
