Taking their name from the arc shape they perform in, Curve Ensemble is a select group of pioneering player/performers made up of musicians who met playing with many of the major orchestras and chamber ensembles on platforms throughout the UK and abroad. As individuals they have varied careers as soloists, principal players, orchestral leaders and recording artists on renowned stages worldwide and in London’s iconic studios.
Many of Curve Ensemble’s players compose, improvise and arrange in a variety of genres encompassing folk, contemporary, jazz and experimental sound worlds and this is what sets them apart, giving them a fresh perspective on todays classical music scene. Together they are dedicated to encouraging new ways of listening through collectively interpreting the landscape and language of classical music in the 21st century.
Formed in 2023 for a performance presenting new music from a variety of composers from independent record label Bigo & Twigetti, the ensemble gave a performance of immersive and meditative pieces of music with two of the performers also writing music for the event.
Building on the success of their inaugural concert, the innovative ensemble have recently finished recording their first album 'From the Deep' which was released in September 2023. They are planning a second performance with which they will be introducing more new music for string orchestra early in 2024.
