Ensemble Marsyas

Formed in 2011 to explore the virtuoso wind music from the eighteenth century, Ensemble Marsyas counts amongst its members some of the finest historical instrumentalists working in Europe today. Having first met whilst studying in Basel and performing with the European Union Baroque Orchestra, the core members of the ensemble went on to win first prize and audience prize at the 2007 Brugge International Competition playing the music of Zelenka. Each member has since established themselves at the forefront of the profession and individually they have been awarded accolades by both critics and the recording industry alike. Their debut recording of Zelenka’s sonatas (released with Linn in 2012), was awarded a Supersonic Award from Pizzicato and was named ‘Chamber Choice’ by BBC Music Magazine. Other projects include collaborations with fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout and recorder player Maurice Steger, focusing on the exploration of Handel and his wind players and the rediscovery of the soundscape of eighteenth-century Dublin.

Ensemble Marsyas have received support from the Irish Arts Council and Creative Scotland and perform regularly at the Wigmore Hall in collaboration with BBC Radio 3. They have also appeared at the Göttingen Handel, East Neuk, Lammermuir, the Great Music in Irish Houses and the Zelenka Festivals.
