The Nash Ensemble of London
The Nash Ensemble, "Resident Chamber Ensemble at London's Wigmore Hall" since 2010, has built up a remarkable reputation as one of Britain's finest and most adventurous chamber groups, and through the dedication of its founder and artistic director Amelia Freedman CBE and the caliber of its players, has gained a similar reputation all over the world. Its repertoire is vast, and the imaginative, innovative, and unusual programs are as finely designed as the beautiful Nash terraces in London from which the group takes its name.
Not that the Nash Ensemble is classically restricted; it performs with equal sensitivity and musicality, works from Haydn to the avant-garde. Indeed, it is one of the major contributors towards the recognition and promotion of many leading composers. By the end of the 2013-2014 season, the group will have presented more than 300 new works, of which 186 have been especially commissioned, providing a legacy for generations to come.
