Over the last few weeks, the Ensemble has been featured prominently on BBC Radio 3. First, the Ensemble’s Sinfonia Concertante concert with violist Lawrence Power was broadcast live from Glasgow City Halls on Thursday 23 February 2012. Lawrence and SE Artistic Director Jonathan Morton’s performance of Mozart’s glorious Sinfonia Concertante was selected as one of Radio 3’s Editors’ Collection, and you can still listen online until Thursday 22 March.
Then, on Saturday 3 March, the Ensemble travelled to Cockermouth with friend of the Ensemble trumpeter Alison Balsom to take part in the BBC’s Music Nation weekend, a National Countdown Event to the London 2012 Festival. The Ensemble’s performance of its co-commission with Perth Concert Hall – James MacMillan’s trumpet concerto Seraph – was a highlight of the hundreds of events which took place across the country that weekend and is available onlineuntil 1 April.
Later that week, a sextet of Ensemble musicians performed Schoenberg’s Verklarte Nacht and Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and broadcast live on BBC Radio 3. Michael Tumelty of the Herald was at the concert and gave a 5 * review:  “a performance of stupendous insight, coherence and clarity.” You can hear for yourself just how spell-binding the concert was online until Tuesday 13 March
