The Fibonacci Sequence has long been admired as one of this country's most distinguished chamber ensembles and in 2019 they will be celebrating their 25th anniversary. They are regular contributors to BBC Radio 3, and the ensemble members appear at the world's leading festivals and venues - most of them are also on the faculties of leading conservatoires in the UK and abroad. A trio of violin, trumpet and piano recently toured China in a programme of concerts and workshops, and appearances this year include a visit to the Shaldon Festival, two concerts at the 40th Anniversary of the Petworth Festival, along with our return for the fourth time to the Buxton Festival.
Their discography includes works by British composers - among others, John McCabe, Frank Bridge, Alan Rawsthorne and the woman composer Adela Maddison, as well as more contemporary composers Tim Ewers and Tim Murray. The American composer Ned Rorem features on a CD of his works by Naxos, and there is unusual repertoire by Eschmann and Fanny Hünerwadel on the Guild label. The Fibonacci/Deux-Elles collaboration resulted in many CDs, in which players chose treasured pieces from repertoire for their instrument. To date, they have recorded CDs in this series featuring harp, bassoon, oboe, horn, and clarinet, the Schubert Octet, and Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time.
