- London Conchord Ensemble is one of Europe’s leading chamber ensembles
The London Conchord Ensemble returns to the Music Room at Champs Hill to present a double-disc of music from Vienna including works by Beethoven, Berg, Mozart, Schoenberg, Johann Strauss II and Zemlinksy.
 
The ensemble says of the programming: “When compiling a collection of chamber music from Vienna, the embarrassment of riches makes it hard to find an organisational principle. It would be difficult enough to be representative, let alone comprehensive. So, we have tried to do something different. We have put together two discs, focusing upon mixed chamber music for wind, strings and piano, each of which aims to have an internal logic created by links between composers and pieces.”
 

London Conchord Ensemble is one of Europe’s leading chamber ensembles. Their imaginative programming and charismatic performance style have won them many accolades over the years, and they celebrated their 10th anniversary with a BBC Chamber Music Prom at Cadogan Hall. The group has made frequent broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and American National Public Radio. Highlights of recent seasons include performances at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw,

Wigmore Hall, Dusseldorf Tonhalle, Brussels Palais des Beaux Arts, Library of Congress in Washington D.C., and tours of Germany, France, America and New Zealand. Conchord performed a ten-centre nationwide tour as part of Chamber Music New Zealand's International ‘Kaleidoscopes’ Concert Season that included Radio New Zealand broadcasts. With a variety of programmes designed to showcase their flair and flexibility; the group also reached out to a younger audience where they introduced great chamber music works to children.
