Described by Richard Morrison (The Times) as having “telepathic rapport, dazzling virtuosity, serious scholarship, intellectual curiosity and impeccable musicianship", Kosmos Ensemble is re-defining the relationship between classical and world music. Each member of Kosmos is an international soloist in their own right and brings individual flavour to the group.

Kosmos has performed internationally to great acclaim and has given tours in Poland, Italy, Spain, Greece, Channel islands; broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM. In 2018 Errollyn Wallen wrote a Triple concerto for Kosmos which was premiered at the Jersey International Festival and other performances include Chichester Cathedral and Beaumaris Festival.

For this concert Harriet, Meg and Milos have crafted a programme unique to Kosmos, inspired by music from all around the globe. Wild Gypsy fiddling, emotive Jewish and Greek music glide seamlessly into hot-blooded tango, alongside interpretations of Japanese, Polish and Swedish songs, Scottish reels, new arrangements by and for the ensemble, with references to classical composers including Bach, Satie, Piazzolla, Ligeti, Brahms and Sarasate.
