"There's not a hint of the orthodox preciousness that can mar run-of-the-mill period performances" - Metro

Founded  in 1998 from London's leading musicians, London Octave aims to approach the baroque and classical repertoire in a fresh and vital manner, principally for the players’ own enjoyment but of course also for the enjoyment of  the audience. Through their regular London season at St Martin-in-the-Fields but also at the South Bank, on BBC Radio 3 and on their CD's. London Octave has attracted a loyal following of concert goers who appreciate their vitality and virtuosity. This, coupled with their programs based on major and accessible works, has established them as one of  the leading small ensembles in Britain.

Leader: Lorraine McAslan (violin)
