The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble was created in 1967 to perform the larger chamber works—from quintets to octets—with players who customarily work together, instead of the usual string quartet with additional guests. Drawn from the principal players of the orchestra, the Chamber Ensemble tours as a string octet, string sextet, and in other configurations including winds.
“The ensemble played… with obvious pleasure, turning in a luminous and often-breathtaking performance that won the musicians a standing ovation.” -The Washington Post
