Magnard Wind Ensemble: Take Note Ensemble

Paul Hindemith Kleine Kammermusik

The outstanding Magnard Ensemble presents a programme that explores overcoming adversity in a number of ways, ranging from political unrest in Soviet Russia, Elizabethan England and turbulent wartime Europe to the achievements of Amy Beach: the first American woman to compose, publish and premiere a symphony.

Take Note is the Chiltern Arts Young Artist Platform, discovering and championing outstanding young ensembles. Since 2012 the Magnard Ensemble has built a reputation for delivering high-quality performances and dynamic educational projects. Making their international debut at the Culture & Convention Centre Lucerne, Switzerland in January 2017, they have appeared at venues ranging from Wigmore Hall and St Martin-in-the-Fields to festivals and societies nationwide.
