waldegrave ensemble

Since forming in 2009, the Waldegrave Ensemble's players have set out to share their passion for chamber music and to bring a wide variety of works to audiences in greater London and the South-East.

After their 2015 performance of the Nielsen wind quintet as part of the Blackheath monday morning lecture recitals series with Matthew Taylor the ensemble have been asked to return in 2016 for a performance of the chamber reduction of Mahler's Symphony No. 4.

This performance also inspired Matthew Taylor to compose a new work for wind quintet which will recieve its debut performance at Blackheath Halls in 2016. The work will feature mini-concertino movements for each of the player individual characters followed by a grand finale; this will be paired with the Mozart Piano Quintet in Eb major and Poulenc Sextet for wind and piano.
