Ficino Ensemble was formed by Artistic Director Nathan Sherman in 2012 as a flexible group aiming to perform popular chamber music alongside lesser known works that deserve to be appreciated. The Quartet features four outstanding musicans who are building an impressive reputation and an exciting repertoire. Their programme includes two major British works: William Walton’s second quartet from 1946 and Thomas Adès's award-winning second quartet, The Four Quarters, from 2010, written for the Emerson Quartet. Haydn’s Op.76 No.5 - the one with the other-worldly slow movement in F sharp major, and Donnacha Dennehy’s rhythmically entertaining Stamp, complete a fascinating and rewarding programme.
