Ensemble Renard comprises five of the country’s most outstanding young musicians. Together, they exist to explore a wide range of timbral possibilities within modern day chamber performance. It has quickly emerged onto the scene as one of the UK’s most promising young chamber ensembles. To date, they have been made Tunnell Trust awardees, Britten-Pears Young Artists, Stoller Hall Young Artists, and awardees of the Countess of Munster Musical Trust’s Recital Scheme. Performance highlights of the ensemble’s career so far include their European debut at the Dinard Opening Festival in Brittany, a recital at the Aldeburgh Festival, and an appearance on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’ with Sean Rafferty.

The Ensemble’s members are some of the most promising young classical musicians of the moment, who regularly perform with the London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Aurora Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, Manchester Camerata, English Touring Opera, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, London Chamber Orchestra, and the English National Opera, to name but a few.
