The Pelléas Ensemble was formed at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2011. Playing with 'verve and polish' (The Times), they won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Henderson Chamber Ensemble Award in 2018, and the 2017 Elias Fawcett Award for Outstanding Chamber Ensemble at the Royal Overseas League competition. In 2016 they won both the Grand Prize and the Audience Prize in the St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition and were awarded a place on the prestigious Tillett Trust Young Artists' Programme. In 2015 they won First Prize at the British Harp Chamber Music Competition.
The trio by Debussy is the quintessential work for this combination of instruments which is so well suited to the distinctive French sound. As well as adding to their repertoire by arranging music, the Ensemble is commissioning original pieces, the latest of which is Awakening Night by York lecturer John Stringer.
