June 2018 will mark the end of the Schubert Ensemble's 35-year career as one of the world's leading exponents of music for piano and strings. During this time the ensemble has performed in over 40 different countries, has commissioned over 80 works (the most recent of which will be heard in this concert) and has recorded over 30 acclaimed CDs. In 1998 the Ensemble's contribution to British musical life was recognized by being awarded the prize for Best Chamber Ensemble by the Royal Philharmonic Society. Its new recording of the Piano Quartet of Chausson received a double 5-star review in BBC Music Magazine.
