Artist info

Ensemble Caravaggio: (L→R: Carina Drury - cello, Nathaniel Mander - fortepiano, Beatrice Scaldini - violin)

Ensemble Caravaggio formed in 2009 at the Royal Academy of Music, bringing together some of the finest young period performers in London. Its members collaborate with leading historical performance ensembles including The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Hanover Band and the European Union Baroque Orchestra. The group has benefited from the guidance of distinguished musicians such as Carole Cerasi, Jonathan Manson, Walter Reiter, Rachel Podger and Laurence Cummings.

In 2010 Ensemble Caravaggio was awarded first prizes both at the RAM Nancy Nuttal Early Music Competition and the Fenton House Early Keyboard Ensemble Competition, and has since secured a number of recital engagements at Fenton House, Mandeville Place, The Cobbe Collection, Finchcocks, the Russel Collection and the Cirencester Early Music Festival.

Equally at home with harpsichord and historical pianos, Ensemble Caravaggio explores wide-ranging repertoire from the dawn of the Baroque Era through to the 19th Century. Its members are committed to delivering moving and memorable performances of chamber music on period instruments.

“From the very start there was a real grasp of the intent of the work. There was so much passion and depth […] The fortepiano playing throughout was superb!”

(Adjudicating panel, Nancy Nuttal Early Music Prize 2010)

Venue: St Dunstan-in-the-West
