Biography

The Pelléas Ensemble was formed at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2011. Playing with "verve and polish" (The Times), they recently won the Royal Philharmonic Society's Henderson Chamber Ensemble Award, and the Elias Fawcett Award for Outstanding Chamber Ensemble at the Royal Overseas League competition. In 2016 they won both the Grand Prize and the Audience Prize in the St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition, and won a place on the prestigious Tillett Trust Young Artists' Programme. They also won First Prize at the inaugural British Harp Chamber Music Competition.

Their Wigmore Hall debut was praised for its "captivating vitality" and "effortlessness and delicacy" (Seen and Heard International), and they have recently appeared live on BBC Radio 3's ‘In Tune'. They were selected to represent the Guildhall at the City of London Festival, and have given numerous recitals at other London venues including St John's Smith Square. They have been praised for creating an immediate and intimate connection with their audiences, and enjoy sharing stories and insights about their unique repertoire.
