Broen Ensemble is a young and exciting string ensemble based in Scotland. Formed in 2017 they strive to perform works that are less well-known or rarely played, alongside the more familiar masterpieces. This ambition led them to work with exceptional musicians such as Greg Lawson, Robert Irvine, György Déri and Edward McGuire whose new cello concerto is going to be premiered by the ensemble.
Winners of the Tunnell Trust Award 2019 they had their first tour in Scotland and were invited to perform alongside the Maxwell Quartet and Isabel Charisius at the Loch Shiel Festival as featured Young Artists. Other festivals they appeared at include the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Glasgow Cathedral Festival.
To support them in their work, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has engaged them for a three-year recital and ballet collaboration commitment which included performing at the opening of the Solheim Cup in 2019.
Members of the Broen Ensemble when not performing together work with some of the best orchestras in the UK such as the Royal Northern Sinfonia, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Welsh National Opera.
