The internationally-renowned Guildhall String Ensemble was formed in 1981 by outstanding musicians at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Since then, the Ensemble has performed to great acclaim throughout the world gaining enviable reviews.

Recordings for BMG/RCA include music from England and Scandinavia, popular string classics, Concerti Grossi Op 6 by Handel and Corelli, works by Stravinsky, Vivaldi (with Michala Petri), Finzi (with Richard Stolzman) and Baroque Oboe Concertos (with Malcolm Messiter).

A concert by the Guildhall String Ensemble is an exciting visual experience as well as musical, as the musicians (excepting the cellists) perform standing-up in a semi-circle, wear colourful attire and show the audience that they really enjoy performing.

The Ensemble's extensive repertoire ranges from Purcell, Bach and Vivaldi through Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Dvoràk and Elgar to the many contemporary works written for it by leading composers including Robert Saxton, John Woolrich, William Matthias and Judith Weir, to name but a few.

Extensive worldwide touring includes tours throughout Western Europe, the USA, S.E.Asia, India and South America. Its UK concert tours include regular concerts in London's Wigmore Hall, St. John's Smith Square and Barbican Centre. It broadcasts regularly on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM and radio stations around the world.
