Join the prize-winning flute, viola and harp trio known for their “verve and polish” (The Times) for a midday concert in Aldeburgh.

Formed in 2011, Pelléas Ensemble won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Henderson Chamber Ensemble Award in 2018. Their Wigmore Hall debut was praised for its “captivating vitality” and “effortlessness and delicacy” (Seen and Heard International). They have appeared live on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune, and have given numerous recitals in London and around the UK. The performance will include an exciting mix of repertoire by 20th-century composers and the ensemble's own arrangements.
