Frank Bridge composed three sets of three minatures for piano trio in around 1908, and although they were written for some of his students, they are tonally diverse and brilliantly written cameos, and act as a good introduction to his musical style.   The Pixels Ensemble continue their programme with two very well-known and loved stalwarts of the chamber music repertoire – Mozart’s G minor piano quartet and Schubert’s 'Trout Quintet'.

We are delighted to welcome back Pixels Ensemble, a versatile chamber music group with a shared passion for performing the finest repertoire from the classical period to the present day. Its players are all established soloists, chamber musicians, recording artists, orchestral principals and explorers of contemporary music. Formed in 2016 by pianist and director Ian Buckle, the group appears in a wide range of line-ups and combinations, lending itself to innovative programming and enabling huge variety within individual concerts. 

Recent engagements include appearances at Liverpool Philharmonic, the Holywell Music Room in Oxford and Conway Hall in London, and the group enjoys close associations with the University of Liverpool and Stapleford Granary, Cambridge. Pixels Ensemble is committed to new music, with premieres of works by Lera Auerbach, Dani Howard, Martin Iddon, Timothy Jackson, Marco Momi and Karen Tanaka.
