Little Venice Ensemble is a chamber group which consists of a large pool of international musicians. The ensemble was founded in London in 2012 and has since achieved critical acclaim across Europe for its debut CD ‘Deck the Halls’ (No 2 Christmas Album of the Year 2014, Classic FM).
Performing regularly with varying instrumental combinations, Little Venice Ensemble has a flexible and versatile arsenal of repertoire, spanning from Bach duos to full scale productions with a children’s choir, world class soprano and Penny-Lane trumpet! The string players form the core of the ensemble and perform in different constellations depending on the occasion and the repertoire.
“I also love Deck The Halls from the Little Venice Ensemble – A truly talented arranger, Bjorn Kleiman turns out an amazing selection of music – lovely string quintet arrangements.” *****
“This is a fantastic disc,. Familiar pleasures are interspersed with alluring rarities. Soprano Susanna Andersson’s pure-toned vocals are a consistent pleasure, and the chamber arrangements invariably charm.”
