Praised by The Guardian as ‘one of the most adaptable chamber groups in the country’, Ensemble 360 is renowned for its bold programming and engaging interpretations of music ranging from Baroque Duos, through Classical Quartets, to new commissions for all eleven players.

Following on from the 150th birthday celebrations in 2022 of composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, the evening opens with his most famous work The Lark Ascending. Recently voted No.1 in the Classic FM Hall of Fame for a record 12th time, the ensemble presents this well-loved piece in its original version for piano and violin. This is followed by his Concerto for Oboe and Strings, and “Francesca”, the first of Charles Villiers Stanford’s Three Dante Rhapsodies.

This evening concludes with Robert Schumann’s expansive Piano Quintet, composed in his ‘year of chamber music’.
