Since its first concert in January 1983, the Schubert

Ensemble has established itself as one of the world's leading

exponents of music for piano and strings. The ensemble

has broadcast frequently on BBC Radio 3 and has

performed in over 40 different countries. It has around 80

commissions to its name, and has recorded more than 30

critically acclaimed CDs, the most recent being a recording

of piano quartets by Chausson and Saint-Saëns which

received a double 5-star review in BBC Music Magazine. In

1998 the Ensemble received the Royal Philharmonic Society

Best Chamber Ensemble Award.

The Ensemble has decided to bring its 35-year career to a

close at the end of June 2018. It will see out its final season

in celebratory style, with around fifty concerts planned in

the UK and abroad, including return visits to Romania and

Luxembourg and two tours of the USA. The final two

concerts of the Ensemble?s piano quintet series

Quintessentials at Kings Place will take place on October

12th and November 9th 2017, and its final concert at
