Since its first concert in January 1983 the Schubert Ensemble has become widely recognised as one of the world's leading exponents of music for piano and strings. The ensemble has performed in over 40 different countries, has over 80 commissions to its name, has recorded over 30 critically acclaimed CDs and is familiar to British audiences through regular broadcasts on BBC Radio 3. In 1998 the Ensemble's contribution to British musical life was recognized by the Royal Philharmonic Society when it presented the group with the Best Chamber Ensemble Award, for which it was shortlisted again in 2010.

The Ensemble has decided to bring its 35-year career to a close at the end of June 2018. It will see out its final season in celebratory style, with around fifty concerts planned in the UK and abroad, including return visits to Romania and Luxembourg and two tours of the USA. The final two concerts of the Ensemble’s piano quintet series Quintessentials at Kings Place take place on October 12th and November 9th 2017, and its final concert at Wigmore Hall will be on March 21st 2018.

“...vital spontaneity, expressive phrasing and an instinctive way of animating the music’s textures so that they are close-knit but at the same time luminously articulated” The Daily Telegraph
“…to say they play with a seasoned eloquence, a unanimity of feeling born of deep communal consideration, is an understatement for they demand superlatives” Sunday Times
“…outstanding in every respect” Guardian
“…a supernatural degree of polish“ Los Angeles Times
