The Waldegrave Ensemble

The Waldegrave Ensemble is a flexible group with a wind quintet at its core. They perform a wide range of repertoire for wind quintet and collaborate with string and piano players to perform larger mixed chamber works.

Since forming in 2009 the Waldegrave Ensemble have set out to embrace new ways to engage their audiences during their performances; incorporating storytelling or theatre into performances or collaborating with dancers and using visual stimulus to enrich their listeners’ experiences.

Members of the group work alongside composers to create and perform new chamber works. Recent
collaborations include performances of ‘Calendar of intolerable inventions from around the world’ by Hong Kong born composer Raymond Yiu and the 2016 world premiere of a new quintet by British composer Matthew Taylor which they recorded with Toccata Classics.
