Blaze Ensemble is a London-based chamber ensemble, whose performances range from works for small wind ensemble through to chamber orchestra. The group was formed in 1997 and currently gives up to five concerts each season.
Blaze Ensemble performs in all the major lunchtime recital venues in central London. Recent performances have taken place at the Study Society, St Brides, St James’s Piccadilly and St Olave’s in the City.
As well performing staples from the wind and string chamber ensemble repertoire, Blaze has commissioned new works from the UK’s most established contemporary composers. In recent seasons, Blaze has given the first London performance of Chris Gunning’s Concertino for Flute and small orchestra (at St Bride’s), and the first performance of Adrian Sutton’s ‘Montana Peaks’ for chamber ensemble. Blaze has also performed several premieres of works by Paul Pritchard including ‘Imaginarium’, ‘Two Irish Songs and Other Dances’, ‘Fire Dances’ and the revised version of the semi-staged work, ‘Green Man Ho!’ (2022).
