YOU CAN HEAR THE DIFFERENCE. The only reason for a chamber orchestra to exist is to provide a musical experience no other group can. In 1984 Diana Ambache founded the Ambache Chamber Orchestra and Ensemble to do that by performing without a conductor. Her experience as a solo pianist travelling round Britain and the world, has convinced her that music - especially the Mozart she loved - spoke truest when it was performed by like minded musicians who play together because they share a common vision, not just their engagement schedule.

Hear the difference in performance. The Orchestra plays in authentic 18th century fashion without a conductor but directed from the keyboard or by the leader, which produces an intensity in ensemble playing.

Hear the difference from the distaff side. Right from the start, the Ambache has pioneered revivals of works by women. Their three-year cycle of concerts Women of Note features premiéres of works by female composers of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries and has done much to highlight the contribution of women to musical life during the last 250 years.

Hear the difference in the programming. Their musical interests allow the Ambache to produce themed programmes that combine popular classics with unfamiliar works that have been unheard for too long.

The ensemble's recordings of music by Beethoven, Mozart and Louise Farrenc are available on the Carlton Classic Label and the latest recording of Amy Beach chamber music is available on Chandos
