"Britain's premier chamber ensemble"
--The Times of London
An integral part of British musical life for more than 40 years, The Nash Ensemble of London was last heard at the Kennedy Center as part of the 2009 CrossCurrents festival. Boasting an eclectic repertoire, from the classics to the contemporary, they return to perform a program of works for winds and strings, including one of musical literature's timeless cornerstones, Brahms's Clarinet Quintet, a Flute Quartet by Mozart, J. Strauss Jr.'s Emperor Waltzes, and Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony. The Ensemble's imaginative, innovative, and unusual programs are as finely architectured as the beautiful Nash terraces in London from which the group takes its name.
