The 12 Ensemble Encore Screening


Encore Screening - the 12 Ensemble live at Chats Palace, Wed 23 June 2021

Live-stream commissioned by Chats Palace with support from Arts Council England 

The 12 Ensemble is a pioneering un-conducted string ensemble. Modern, dynamic and virtuosic, the group has rapidly developed a reputation as one of Europe's most exhilarating collectives, moving audiences worldwide with powerful musical experiences.

Formed in 2012 by Artistic Directors Eloisa-Fleur Thom & Max Ruisi, the 12 Ensemble’s unique approach to rehearsing, performing & programming sets them apart as a revolutionary ensemble relevant in the 21st century. Exploring great music of the past alongside ground-breaking new commissions and collaborations with outstanding contemporary artists, the ensemble sets itself no boundaries and reaches diverse audiences with exceptional musical experiences.

Always playing without a conductor, the core formation consists of twelve of London’s leading chamber musicians. Without a conductor, every member of the group develops an intense engagement with the music they play, combining the thrilling energy, commitment and spontaneous creativity of a small ensemble or band, with the breathtaking sound afforded by a larger string orchestra. It's what makes our live performances so special.
