Formed by musicians graduated from the London Royal College of Music, the Royal Academy of Music, and other prestigious universities of the UK, the ensemble specializes in the historic performance of the Baroque and classical repertoire. Along with well-known and popular works, their concert programmes also include special pieces that are less frequently performed or deserve to be rediscovered. Their featured guests at the Jabot Festival will be Magdalena Loth-Hill and Dominika Fehér.
Magdalena Loth-Hill is one of the finest soloists and chamber musicians of her generation, who plays both modern and historic instruments. She has performed with such ensembles as the English Baroque Soloists, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Academy of Ancient Music, among others.
After graduating from Budapest’s Liszt Academy, Dominika Fehér attended the Birmingham Royal Conservatoire on a Weingarten Scholarship, with Rimma Sushanskaya, a former student of Oistrakh, as her mentor. It was here she became interested in the baroque violin, which she went on to study with Margaret Faultless, Lucy Russell and Oliver Webber. She has appeared in concert with some of the leading ensembles of the historically informed performance mode, and her valuable instrument, a Rogeri violin, was lent to her by Beare’s International Violin Society on the recommendation of Simon Smewing.
This concert of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre.
