The Schubert Ensemble of London

Since its first concert in 1983 The Schubert Ensemble of London has become established as one of Britain's leading chamber groups specializing in music for piano and strings. Well-known to audiences in Britain through regular BBC broadcasts and touring, the Ensemble is in increasing demand abroad. It has visited the Far East several times and has toured both North and South America. It has also performed in France, Italy, Malta, Ireland, and the Czech and Slovak Republics.

Despite the Ensemble's association with Schubert, it has established a wide repertoire of works for various combinations of its five instruments, including all the major works for piano quartet. It has a strong commitment to presenting contemporary music to a wide audience, generally in the context of a more traditional repertoire, and has commissioned works from Michael Berkeley, Colin Matthews, David Matthews, Anthony Powers, John McCabe, Judith Weir and Sally Beamish.
