When four friends and established musicians wanted to do more chamber music, the Tiny Baroque Ensemble was born! Featuring two violas, recorder and bassoon they create a rich and creamy texture full of exciting interlocking voices. Using period instruments they update the improvisatory traditions of the baroque era for a modern audience, playing everything thing from folk tunes to chaconnes and chorales. And when they’re not doing this they go back to their ‘day-jobs’ playing with top orchestras and ensembles around the UK and Europe- including Bournemouth Symphony, guest soloist appearances with Florilegium, and recording for TV shows on Dave.
