As one of Britain’s finest ensembles, Primavera has created an enviable reputation with an accolade of reviews at international festivals in Britain and around the world. They have made regular appearances on the South Bank and at Wigmore Hall and have specialised in presenting chamber music series in country houses in the UK. As a small ‘chamber band’ they have recorded highly appraised CDs of Mendelssohn string symphonies, Russian string works, a French and English collection of string music and as an ensemble, Mendelssohn's Octet and First String Quintet. New commissions have included works by leading composers such as Paul Patterson, Patrick Gowers, Gavin Bryars, Malcolm Lipkin and Phillip Glass. The band has also worked with other prominent artists including Bruno Canino, Larry Adler, Robert Cohen, Raphael Wallfisch, Emma Johnson, Sir David Willcocks, Michael Chance, and Robert Tear.
