The Artists

Aeolian Winds are a London-based wind quintet who strive to create imaginative and rounded concerts through their vibrant playing and inspired programming. They were formed in September 2021 at the Royal College of Music, where they were recently awarded the distinguished Woodwind Ensemble Prize. Aeolian Winds have performed in a variety of prestigious venues across London, and the South of England. They aim to perform diverse and unknown works, with a focus on 20th century, and contemporary music. Their performances have been described as ‘pure joy’ and ‘something very special’.

Whilst also taking a liking to more conventional programming, Aeolian Winds have also expanded into multimedia with their feature in David Bruce’s YouTube video, exploring the unique and vibrant sound of the chamber group through re-orchestration and storytelling. They are also interested in creating cross-genre and disciplinary projects, including immersive and intimate concerts in unconventional venues. The ensemble is always planning for even more music making, with concerts year-round across the UK. They cannot wait to expand their sound, repertoire and performance skills even further into the future.
