Ensemble Hesperi

Young Artists Lunchtime Recital 5

Award-winning early music group Ensemble Hesperi present a taste of 18th Century Scotland. Inspired by the haunting traditional melodies and infectious dance rhythms around them, Scottish composers created a new ‘fusion’ of folk and high baroque fashion to save Scottish musical culture from extinction!

Ensemble Hesperi is dedicated to showcasing the infinite colours and possibilities of their instruments, presenting programmes through the lens of colourful characters from the musical past.

They have performed across the UK including at Lichfield Festival, Petworth Festival, Newcastle University Early Music series, Brighton Early Music Festival, and Totnes Early Music Club.
