For almost two decades, the New London Chamber Ensemble has challenged traditional ideas of chamber music with its innovative programmes, combining classic repertoire with semi-staged works incorporating drama, speech and action.
The NLCE’s programme will be a Beethoven-themed programme in celebration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. It is also the NLCE’s 20th birthday. It will include a new Beethoven-themed commission in celebration of both birthdays, and other Beethoven-inspired repertoire for wind quintet, including the Reicha Quintet in E minor Op 88 no. 1.
