Introducing the performers…

Benjamin Nabarro

Born in Nottingham, Benjamin Nabarro attended Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester before studying at the Royal Academy of Music with Erich Gruenberg, and later in Chicago with Shmuel Ashkenasi. Described by Musical Opinion magazine as “an outstanding artist”, Benjamin’s performances have taken him throughout Europe, North America, Africa, and the Far and Middle East. As a soloist, director and guest concertmaster he has appeared with groups such as the English Chamber Orchestra, Philharmonia and BBC Symphony Orchestra, among others. In 2009 he was appointed first violinist of Ensemble 360. Formed in 2005 to take up residency in South Yorkshire with Music in the Round, Ensemble 360 brings together eleven world-class musicians to form one versatile group; five string players, five wind players and a pianist. Benjamin also plays regularly with the Nash Ensemble, and has appeared at the BBC proms as well as venues worldwide. As a recording artist, he can be heard on the Hyperion and Dutton labels, among others.

Adderbury Ensemble

Formed in 1986 by a group of the UK’s finest young freelance musicians, the Adderbury Ensemble have always had a flexible line-up, mixing and matching different players to deliver performances primarily as quartets, quintets or small chamber groups and occasionally adding further instruments to play symphonies and concertos by the likes of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn or Brahms – with or without a conductor.

Everyone who performs as part of the Adderbury Ensemble is an eminent instrumentalist, usually a principal player with one or more of the leading orchestras of Europe. From their early years playing Sunday evening concerts in the beautiful village of Adderbury in north Oxfordshire, the group have gone on to develop a global reputation. They perform regularly throughout Britain and other European nations, and played their first concerts in the United States in Spring 2016. They also helped found the world-famous Oxford Coffee Concerts at the Holywell Music Room, the oldest purpose-built music venue in Europe.

The Adderbury Ensemble have released ten recordings in their own right since their first CD was released in 1997, and individual members have recorded many more, either as soloists or as members of other groups.
