Award winning violinist Fenella Humphreys presents a reworking of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons for an incredible chamber ensemble of violin, accordion, double bass and percussion, bringing a whole new world of diverse and brilliant sounds to Vivaldi’s masterpiece.

With her playing described in the press as ‘alluring’, ‘unforgettable’ and ‘a wonder’, Fenella Humphreys is one of the UK’s most established and versatile violinists, having won the BBC Music Magazine Premiere Recording Award in 2023 and the Instrumental Award in 2018.

BBC New Generation artist, Royal Over-Seas League Gold medallist and Classic FM Rising Star, Ryan Corbett is an accordionist hailed by Sir James MacMillan as ‘one of the most astonishing and surprising newcomers in Scottish music.’ A ‘boundless musical explorer’ (Tom Service, BBC R3) George Barton brings rigour and intensity to the broadest range of musical contexts, including as a member of Riot Ensemble, Colin Currie Group and GBSR Duo.

Benjamin Russell Is Principal Double Bass of the London Mozart Players and a member of the Britten Sinfonia, for whom he regularly plays as guest principal as well as with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and City of London Sinfonia.
