A welcome return to Conway Hall for Leon Bosch’s renowned ensemble, I Musicanti, featuring the first outing of York-born composer Robin Walker’s The Song of Bone on Stone, especially written for Leon Bosch. Framing this exciting world premiere are two classics of the chamber music repertoire, including an intimate arrangement of Beethoven’s grand ‘Emperor’ concerto by 19th century composer Vinzenz Lachner.

“I Musicanti embodies the universally cherished ideal of total artistic freedom and unrestrained self-expression, and it aims to provide a home to creative and imaginative artists who share the ambition of realising this dream.” (Leon Bosch)

A mixed instrument chamber ensemble, I Musicanti comprises some of the most experienced and respected musicians to be found in the UK, hand picked by the group’s artistic director, international double bass virtuoso Leon Bosch.

Under Bosch’s direction, I Musicanti comes together to present distinctive programmes with a particular emphasis on music that has been lost and found or simply overlooked: great works by unknown composers and unknown works by great composers.

Many of the ensemble’s projects are the result of Leon Bosch’s vivid curiosity and commitment, something for which he is well known as a double bassist. But the ensemble also provides a vehicle for its members to pursue their own artistic projects. And although the musicians of I Musicanti are all soloists in their own right, the group also collaborates with international performers of the highest calibre.

While I Musicanti works with prestigious venues to promote its concerts, its eye-catching programmes and the quality of performers add something unique to festivals and concert series.
