Founded by Paul McCreesh in 1982, Gabrieli Consort & Players are world-renowned interpreters of great choral and instrumental repertoire, spanning from the renaissance to the present day. Their performances encompass major works from the oratorio tradition, virtuosic a cappella programmes and mould-breaking reconstructions of music for historical events and their recordings with Deutsche Grammophon have garnered numerous international awards.
Gabrieli Consort & Players are regular visitors to the world's most prestigious concert halls and appear frequently at all of London's major venues. Recent highlights have included a European concert tour of Handel Arias with Rolando Villazón, a gargantuan performance of Haydn's Creation as part of the BBC Proms 2009 and tours of a cappella music around many of Spain's spectacular cathedrals. The ensemble is increasingly committed to working with Chetham’s School of Music and some of the UK’s finest youth choirs.
