Formed in 2004, The Dmitri Ensemble is a performing group committed to presenting both unjustly neglected and newly-written works. Initially based around the central core of a string ensemble, it has worked alongside living composers and has given a number of world premières. The Ensemble’s recordings of works by James MacMillan (Naxos 8.570719) and Giles Swayne (Naxos 8.572595) received great critical acclaim, including Editor’s Choice in Gramophone and BBC Music magazines. Other recordings include a disc of previously-unrecorded works by Vaughan Williams on the Albion label, performed with the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge. The Ensemble takes its name from its début performance in the Chapel of Trinity College, Cambridge, where the programme concluded with Rudolf Barshai’s arrangement of Dmitri Shostakovich’s Eighth String Quartet, the so-called Chamber Symphony, Op. 110a.
