Krysia Osostowicz is one of the leading violinists of her generation and founder of the Dante Quartet. She has given concerto and recital performances across Europe and made a series of award-winning recordings. From 1985-1995 she played with Domus, the pioneering piano quartet which toured with its own portable concert hall – a geodesic dome – winning a worldwide audience and two Gramophone awards. Krysia has made over 30 CD recordings of solo, duo and ensemble repertoire, including the sonatas of Brahms, Fauré and Bartók for Hyperion. Her recordings of Edmund Rubbra’s violin sonatas are described as “performances of flawless integrity”. Krysia is also principal violinist of Endymion Ensemble, teaches at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and gives masterclasses in England and France. Born in London of a Polish family, Krysia studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School and Cambridge University and her teachers have included Yehudi Menuhin, Alberto Lysy, Sándor Végh and Ferenc Rados.

Julian Jacobson, who studied with Lamar Crowson, John Barstow and Louis Kentner, has established a reputation as a pianist of extraordinary breadth and versatility. His repertoire is firmly centred on the great classics of the repertoire – in recent years he has become particularly known for his Beethoven cycles and marathons – but he is also an acclaimed exponent of contemporary music including jazz, and as a much sought-after duo and ensemble pianist he has partnered many leading British and international soloists. His concert tours have taken him to over 40 countries worldwide and he has recorded more than 20 CDs.

Chris Richards has studied clarinet at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Thea King, Julian Farrell and Joy Farrall. After graduation, he was appointed as principal clarinet of the Northern Sinfonia and in 2010 became principal clarinet of the London Symphony Orchestra. He is often invited to perform with the major orchestras in Great Britain.

Chris Richards has performed as a soloist with the Northern Sinfonia, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, collaborating with conductors such as Thomas Zehetmair, Robin Ticciati and Nicholas McGegan. His interpretations of “Gnarly Buttons” by John Adams and “Duett-Concertino” by Strauss were broadcasted live by BBC Radio 3. Chamber music concerts figure prominently in Chris Richards activity. He played at the Wigmore Hall, LSO St Luke, The Sage Gateshead and Aldeburgh Festival with artists such as Pascal Rogé, Howard Shelley and the Aronowitz Ensemble.
