Zoffany Ensemble

Part of the Conway Hall Sunday Concerts, Spring 2017 Season

Add to my Calendar 19-02-2017 18:30 19-02-2017 20:30 36 Zoffany Ensemble Manon Derome (violin)Catherine Musker (viola)Anthony Pleeth (cello)Michael Dussek (piano) In 2009, as a result of a passionate interest in Classical and Romantic chamber music, Manon Derome formed the Zoffany Ensemble with three very special colleagues; Catherine Musker, known for her wonderfully expressive and characterful playing, Anthony Pleeth, greatly respected for his musical integrity and renowned abilities as a player, and Michael Dussek, recognised for his acclaimed qualities of nuance and sensitivity that have made him such a successful chamber musician and accompanist. The Zoffany Ensemble performs many of the greatest works in the chamber music repertoire by Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Schumann and Brahms, and also music by more neglected composers such as Louise Farrenc and Anton Arensky. From time to time other players, with whom Manon has a close affinity, are added to the group as the repertoire demands. The ensemble takes its name from the German-born, neoclassical artist and founding member of the Royal Academy, Johann Zoffany, whose paintings, as well as portraying eminent actors such as David Garrick, often depicted the nobility in their pursuit of musical entertainment. Zoffany came to London in 1760, and from around 1770 - 1800 produced work of exceptional quality, much of it now displayed in the National Gallery, the Tate Gallery and the Royal Collection. zoffanyensemble.com Conway Hall, London DD/MM/YYYY
