The Blaze Ensemble was established in 1997 and aims to give high quality chamber music concerts featuring a diverse range of works: from the baroque to the contemporary, from trios to large ensemble works, from popular mainstream repertoire through to the less familiar. Our inaugural concert included the Dohnanyi Sextet and the Kegelstatt Trio at St. James's, Piccadilly. The name 'Blaze Ensemble' derives from the group's association with the music production company, Blaze Music; the very first concert was set up to mark the creation of Blaze Music. The majority of Blaze Ensemble performances take place as part of established lunchtime chamber music series in venues around central London. Blaze Ensemble also undertakes performances around the UK and overseas including concerts in Florence, Italy and Switzerland. Now in our 21st anniversary season, we will be performing at a wide variety of venues including St. James's Piccadilly, St Olave's, Blackheath Halls, St Bride's and returning to St. Martin-in-the- Fields.
