Bach’s Oboe Sonata contrasts bright and lively sections with serene, flowing lines. Although the piece is credited to Johann Sebastian Bach, some scholars believe it was written by his son, Carl Philipp Emanuel.
Haydn’s Trio was written when the flute was becoming popular in England. Also subtitled London, his Symphony No.104 is considered to be the crowning glory of his symphonic works.
Grave was written by Lutoslawski as a memorial for Polish musicologist Stefan Jarocinski, and opens with a quotation from Debussy’s opera Pelléas et Mélisande, on which Jarocinski was an expert. Grave features an intense dialogue between cello and piano, moving on to rhythmically vigorous sections and virtuosic lines before its spectral conclusion

Ensemble 360 has quickly gained an enviable reputation across the UK not only for the quality and integrity of the members’ playing, but also for their ability to communicate the music to a range of different audiences.
Formed in 2005, eleven musicians of international standing came together to take up residency in Sheffield with Music In The Round, establishing a versatile group comprising five string players, five wind players and a pianist. The members believe in concerts being informal, friendly and relaxed occasions, and perform 'in the round' wherever possible. Having an audience on all four sides brings with it an intimacy and immediacy between musician and audience that other layouts cannot match.
'Eleven international musicians, brimming with body and soul with passion, vitality and virtuosity, whose performances never cease to amaze' (The Independent)
'The emotional chemistry was manifestly unusual... pure magic' (The Sunday Telegraph).
