Sunday Concerts: Divertimenti

“You look as if you are really enjoying yourselves!” is the consistent audience response to Divertimenti Ensemble concerts, which are remarkable for their vibrant, spontaneous and communicative performances. An unusual combination of entertaining informality with musical excellence and professionalism, coupled with colourful and informative introductions, adds a special quality of inclusive sharing to the whole concert experience.

Uniquely, four of the players in this outstanding ensemble were founder members at its inception in 1978. All five are top-ranking players with a wealth of world wide concert experience between them, as soloists and orchestral principals as well as chamber music players. Long-standing friends, they share an evergreen love of music making, and a passion for the rich sonorities of the string ensemble repertoire.
