BBC Music MagazineChamber 'Choice'
BBC Music Magazine
'...the players combine wit, taste and an earthy Bohemian wink to win the heart.'    

 

Pizzicto Supersonic Award 'Supersonic Award' from Pizzicato December 2012 

These sonatas represent the most spectacularly challenging music ever written for wind instruments in terms of their utopian demands on the technique of the players, their musical integrity and their breathtaking scale. This repertoire saw the ensemble awarded both first prize and the audience prize at the 2007 Brugge International Competition.

The recording made the Baker and Taylor 'Hotlist': '[a] gorgeous disc ...the members of Ensemble Marsyas acquit themselves beautifully. Strongly recommended.'

The Edinburgh based chamber group comprises the best of a new generation of musicians specialising in early music from across Europe. Ensemble Marsyas is Peter Whelan - bassoon, Josep Domènech Lafont - oboe, Molly Marsh - oboe, Thomas Dunford - theorbo, Philippe Grisvard - harpsichord/organ, Christine Sticher - violone.
