Founded in 1983, the Schubert Ensemble is firmly established as one of the world’s leading exponents of chamber music for piano and strings. Giving more than fifty concerts a year, the Ensemble has visited more than forty different countries, most recently having performed in Bermuda, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Romania, Italy and the USA, and also having made its first tour of China.

In 1998, in recognition of its contribution to British musical life, it received the Best Chamber Ensemble Award from the Royal Philharmonic Society, being short-listed again in 2010. It has appeared on TV and radio in many countries and is heard regularly on BBC Radio 3.

The Ensemble has curated three festivals at Kings Place in London, Finding Fauré in 2009, Saint-Saëns’s Paris in 2010 and a series celebrating the Ensemble’s 30th Anniversary in 2013, as well as an Enescu/Dvorák series at the Wigmore Hall, all widely praised. It also programmed the 2010/11 International Chamber Series for Leeds City Council, devising a Viennese season with the title Transfigured Night.

In the field of education, new music, and audience development, the Schubert Ensemble has carried out performing and educational Residencies at the University of Bristol, Cardiff University, Hall for Cornwall in Truro, Wiltshire Music Centre and Birmingham Conservatoire, commissioned more than eighty works and, combining education and new music initiatives, created the groundbreaking national project 'Chamber Music 2000'.

Previously released in 1997.
