Berkeley Ensemble

Currently in rehearsals with the Berkeley Ensemble for next week's concert at The Forge in Camden. This will be the first in a series of five concerts entitled 'Stealing, Borrowing, Remembering', exploring how two twentieth-century masters, Igor Stravinsky and Lennox Berkeley, responded to the music of the past, re-working it in their own compositions before ultimately becoming historical figures themselves for the generation that followed.  This programme involves piano quintets by Lennox Berkelely and Mozart, as well as music with oboe and clarinet by John Woolrich and Michael Berkeley.  Plenty to get through!
