The Pelléas Ensemble was formed at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2011. Playing with “verve and polish” (The Times), they recently won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Henderson Chamber Ensemble Award, and the 2017 Elias Fawcett Award for Outstanding Chamber Ensemble at the Royal Overseas League competition. In 2016 they won both the Grand Prize and the Audience Prize in the St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition, and won a place on the prestigious Tillett Trust Young Artists’ Programme. In 2015 they won First Prize at the British Harp Chamber Music Competition. They are Park Lane Group Young Artists.
In November, they made their debut at the Wigmore Hall, where they were praised for their “captivating vitality" and “effortlessness and delicacy" (Seen and Heard International) and have recently appeared live on BBC Radio 3's ‘In Tune’.

They will be joined for this recital by the cellist, George Hoult.
