Ensemble Hesperi’s interest in Scottish Baroque repertoire has inspired this programme of mid 18th century music by London-based Scottish musicians during the Jacobite Rebellion and explores James Oswald’s secret music society, ‘The Temple of Apollo’.
Ensemble Hesperi formed at the RCM. They appeared on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’ in 2019, and were selected both as Britten Pears Young Artists for 2020 on the ‘Chamber Music in Residence’ programme, and ‘Take Note’ artists for Chiltern Arts Festival. Members also work with musical charity ‘Live Music Now’, and with Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, performing at its Tercentenary Service in Westminster Abbey.
