If you heard them perform in 2019, one change you will notice is the arrival of Anne Denholm as the ensemble’s harpist, who performs on this occasion with Luba Tunnicliffe (viola) and Henry Roberts (flute).
Henry has appeared a number of times on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’ and has played in venues such as Wigmore Hall, and Buckingham Palace. He regularly works with orchestras including the Hallé, Sinfonia Cymru As a soloist, he has performed Mozart’s Flute Concerto in G with the Horsham Symphony Orchestra and Mozart’s Flute Quartets at Concerts in the West.
Luba has performed solo recitals at London’s Royal Festival Hall and St John’s Smith Square, and made her debut as concerto soloist with the Philharmonia Orchestra in June 2016.
