The Zoffany Ensemble performs many of the greatest works in the chamber music repertoire by Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Schumann and Brahms, alongside music by more neglected composers such as Farrenc and Arensky.

To close our autumn 2023 season, we welcome them back in a colourful programme of works for large ensemble: an early Divertimento by Mozart and Beethoven’s Septet, one of his most popular works in his lifetime, something which frustrated him so much that he is reported to have said: “That damn work! I wish it were burned!”. Berwald certainly did not share this sentiment and wrote his B flat septet, which completes the programme, inspired by Beethoven’s masterpiece.
