'A terrific performance of Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time'
Donald Macleod, BBC Radio 3 (Easter at Kings, 2013)
The Goldfield Ensemble is a vibrant mix of experienced soloists, chamber musicians, orchestral players and scholars, each bringing a unique perspective to repertoire and performance. Founded in 2011 by a group of Hertfordshire-based friends, the Ensemble has quickly established itself as a high calibre, proactive chamber group with a reputation for innovative programming, artistic collaborations and curation of events embracing lesser-known and unusual repertoire.
In 2014 the Goldfield Ensemble take up the newly created post of Ensemble-in-Residence in association with the ACE Foundation at Bury Farm Arts Centre in South Cambridgeshire where they will present a series of concerts throughout the year. Current work includes research into and performance of unknown British repertoire from the early 20th C and a multi-media project integrating groundbreaking audio-visual Wellcome Trust commissions into a live performance context aiming to attract new and diverse audiences.
