Chamber Domaine was recently described on BBC Radio 3 as "the most innovative ensemble in Britain today". With its line-up of outstanding players, this London based ensemble has established an international name through passionate, insightful performances and fascinating programme building.
Chamber Domaine integrates chamber music and song from our time with music from the 18th and 19th centuries. It takes an innovatory approach to programming in its recitals, recordings and educational activities and is constantly exploring ways of developing audiences and broadening understanding and interest in the genre. The Times recently commented "Chamber Domaine brilliantly demonstrated the thrill of young players successfully climbing Mount Everest...with exhilarating bravely and expressive force". The New York Times praised the ensemble for its "intriguing programming" and "unabashed lushness".
Described as by The Times "a mini Kindertotenlieder for our time", Chamber Domaine gave the world premiere of Judith Bingham's "My Fathers Arms" at the City of London Festival last year and a subsequent performance at the Cheltenham International Festival which was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
Chamber Domaine also received widespread praise for a series of concerts in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London for the 100th anniversary of Freud's "The Interpretation of Dreams": The Financial Times described the series as "exceptional musical events." The ensemble has also given UK and world premieres by many leading composers including Schreker, Webern, Shostakovich, Ferneyhough, Norgard, Hakim, Krenek, Cole, Raffaseder, Gurney, Bingham as well as retrieving fascinating scores by Bliss, Finzi, Lambert, Quilter, Strauss, Sibelius, Horovitz, Weigl, Goldschmidt, Korngold and the Bletchley Park code-breaker and polymath, Daniel Jones. They have worked with the legendary Estonian composer, Arvo Paert in a series of concerts at the Edinburgh Festival and have recorded a disc of his music for the Black Box Label for release in the Spring.
Chamber Domaine has a London Season of 15 concerts including events at the Wigmore Hall, Blackheath Halls, South Bank Centre, Imperial War Museum and St.Martin-in-the-Fields.
