Britten Sinfonia

One of the Europe’s most celebrated and innovative groups, Britten Sinfonia features some of the country’s finest chamber musicians. The orchestra is widely praised for the quality of its performance and intelligent approach to concert programming which is centred around the development of its players. Uniquely it does not have a principal conductor or Artistic Director but chooses to work with a range of the finest international guest artists from across the musical spectrum as suited to each particular project.

Recent seasons have included projects with Thomas Adès, Angela Hewitt, Masaaki Suzuki, Nitin Sawhney, James MacMillan, Ian Bostridge, Joanna MacGregor, Gil Goldstein and the Michael Clark Company. In 2008/09 guest artists include Pierre Laurent-Aimard, Mark Padmore, stage director Katie Mitchell, Dhafer Youssef and Paul Lewis, and we continue our relationship with Imogen Cooper, Alina Ibragimova and Polyphony with Stephen Layton.

Britten Sinfonia performs in many of Europe’s finest concert halls and has residencies in Cambridge, Norwich, Birmingham and Krakow with a concert series at London’s Southbank Centre and a lunchtime concert series at London’s Wigmore Hall. The ensemble enjoys a blossoming international profile, a recent highlight being an acclaimed tour of South America, and is frequently heard on disc, BBC Radio 3 and commercial radio. Britten Sinfonia won the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society Ensemble Award in recognition of its work.
