 Biography

The Chamber Ensemble of London - up to 14 string players - is directed by the violinist Peter Fisher, amongst a handful of the world's finest musicians as The Times noted following a Royal Albert Hall concert in 2005.

The Ensemble has given dozens of classical concerts at St Martin-in-the-Fields, St James’s Piccadilly and the Purcell Room. For many years it was associated with the Wavendon Festival run by Sir John Dankworth and Dame Cleo Laine, which meant it also played light music and jazz as well as the standard baroque and classical repertoire. Versatile programming, often using special arrangements and new music, has led to engagements with the London Film Museum in County Hall, the Banqueting House and the Victoria & Albert Museum. CEOL has also played for several music societies and at festivals outside London.

The players are handpicked from London's best, and their repertoire spans baroque, classical, romantic and new music.

Peter Fisher plays regularly with Dorothy Linell, lutenist and plucked instrument player, pianist Peter Hewitt and with the Trio Petrus piano trio. Peter has also had very successful partnerships with pianists Alvin Moisey, Michael Dussek and Nadia Lasserson.
