Specialising in the historically accurate performance of music from the 18th century, the Feinstein Ensemble’s concerts and recordings of the Baroque repertoire have been acclaimed internationally. The Ensemble performs often in London, including a festival of Bach at Southbank Centre each March and an Autumn season of Cantata concerts at St Martin-in-the-fields. International tours have included the Far East, Germany, the Gulf and Egypt, Israel, Belgium and Holland.
The Feinstein Ensemble’s collaborations with the London Bach Singers have included performances of Bach’s Mass in B Minor, the St John Passion, the Magnificat and the Easter Oratorio, each of which have met with critical praise. The Ensemble can be heard on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM and they have broadcast a groundbreaking documentary and live performance of Bach’s six Brandenburg Concerti for BBC Television.
The London Bach Singers is a chamber choir of virtuosi, specifically founded to perform the great choral works of Bach with their sister group the Feinstein Ensemble.
The singers specialise in single-voice performances of Bach’s Cantatas, Passions and Masses. Each member is an established soloist in their own right with a vast experience in the performance of baroque music.
