The Pelléas Ensemble was formed at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2011. Playing with “verve and polish” (The Times), they recently won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Henderson Chamber Ensemble Award, and the 2017 Elias Fawcett Award for Outstanding Chamber Ensemble at the Royal Overseas League competition. In 2016 they won both the Grand Prize and the Audience Prize in the St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition, and won a place on the prestigious Tillett Trust Young Artists’ Programme. In 2015 they won First Prize at the British Harp Chamber Music Competition. They are Tunnell Trust Young Artists.
Their Wigmore Hall debut was praised for its “captivating vitality” and “effortlessness and delicacy" (Seen and Heard International), and they have recently appeared live on BBC Radio 3's ‘In Tune’. They were selected to represent the Guildhall at the City of London Festival, and have given numerous recitals at other London venues including St John’s Smith Square. They have been praised for creating an immediate and intimate connection with their audiences.
They are dedicated to performing new music, and have premiered three new works this year, with two further commissions planned for next year.
- Bax - Elegiac Trio
- J.S. Bach - Sonata for Flute and Basso Continuo
- Debussy - Sonata for Flute, Viola & Harp
- Corelli - Trio Sonata
- Timothy Salter - Mosaics
- Ravel arr. Salzedo - Sonatine
- Luba Tunnicliffe viola
- Henry Roberts flute
- Oliver Wass harp
Dorset County Museum Music Society
Six fine professional chamber concerts given in St Mary’s Church and the United Church Dorchester. These temporary venues are necessitated by the closure of the Dorset County Museum building and its wonderful Victorian Hall, the home of the DCMMS for 44 years, during the extensive and hugely exciting building works - Tomorrow's Museum for Dorset - funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund. We look forward to our return to the Museum for the start of the 2020/2021 season.
