Quite simply, the Phantasm Consort is the very best viol ensemble in the world today.
Under the direction of Laurence Dreyfus, the Gramophone-award winning consort has performed everywhere from Tokyo to Istanbul and their many recordings have been lauded as eloquent, sensitive, sensuous and beguiling.
They explore rich repertoire from the golden age of the viol consort, with music by William Byrd, Orlando Gibbons, Matthew Locke and Henry Purcell that we have too few opportunities to hear. The programme is capped by excerpts from Bach’s profound Art of Fugue.
Stylistic understanding, artistry and skill, animated by a passion for early music - Phantasm offers a rare and unforgettable experience.
"Rigorous intellect with sensitive musicianship." - BBC Music Magazine
