Formed in 2011 by some of Britain’s most distinguished musicians, the London Soloists Ensemble have very quickly established themselves as a chamber group of superb quality. Appointed as ‘Associate Ensemble’ by St John’s Smith Square in London, they began their first series of Sunday afternoon concerts at this prestigious venue in June 2013. In a busy first season they also broadcast for BBC Radio 3 and have appeared in festivals and arts centres throughout the United Kingdom.

One of the most distinguished British violinists of her generation, Lorraine McAslan studied at The Juilliard School in New York with Dorothy DeLay. She has appeared as soloist with major orchestras throughout Europe and was for several seasons first violin of the Maggini String Quartet. Sarah-Jane Bradley has established a distinguished international reputation as a solo violist. As a former founder member of the Leopold String Trio and subsequently a member of the Sorrel Quartet, she has performed at some of the world’s most prestigious festivals and is also known as a pioneer of new music for the viola with an ever growing list of new works written especially for her. Karine Georgian, Gold Medal winner of the Tchaikovsky Competition, is an internationally admired representative of the golden generation of Russian string players and has appeared as soloist with leading orchestras and conductors worldwide. The New York Times described John Lenehan as a pianist of “great flair and virtuosity” and he has performed worldwide to critical acclaim as soloist and chamber musician. He is also in demand as an arranger and orchestrator. Anthony Pike was born in Seoul, Korea, and studied the clarinet in London with Julian Farrell, Dame Thea King and in Chicago with Robert Marcellus. He is principal clarinet of the English Chamber Orchestra and has performed concertos with them throughout the world.
