The 12 Ensemble continue their remarkable rise on the international classical music scene with their stunning debut album, entitled Resurrection. Featuring a new work by Bryce Dessner, the acclaimed composer & guitarist of the alternative rock band The National, a commission from boundary-pushing UK composer Kate Whitley and works by Lutoslawski and Woolrich, the record is a powerful collection of four works for strings that reflect the ensemble's spirit of bringing new energy and insight into established sounds and ideas. The 12 Ensemble have developed a reputation across Europe as one of the UK's leading string orchestras. The group regularly works with British composer Max Richter and has performed in a number of his concerts, including the Four Seasons Recomposed. This debut recording on producer Steve Abbott's brand new Sancho Panza label highlights the group's commitment to intimate music-making that lives and breathes, performed with dazzling energy and an astonishing sound, all based on the principle of putting the music in charge.
