    Improviso will perform works by composers including G.P. Telemann and Dario Castello, alongside their own improvisations.

    Described as "the Elizabethan rock'n'roll" (Juliet Stevenson) at their concert debut at Middle Temple Hall, London, Improviso are a UK-based period music ensemble.

    Their name derives both from their fascination with historical improvisation practices as well as their passion for exploring unusual repertories and presenting unexpected programmes of music from the fourteenth century onwards.

    Improviso's members met while studying at the Royal College of Music in London. They are one of the young ensembles on the Brighton Early Music Festival Live! Scheme for 2017-18, and will perform as part of the festival's showcase in November 2017. They have also been selected for a two-week residency at Snape Maltings in 2018 as part of their Chamber Music Residencies scheme, a series that offers exceptional emerging chamber ensembles coaching and two concerts at the Jubilee Hall in Aldeburgh.

    They have already appeared at a number of festivals and venues in the UK and Europe, including the Styriarte Festival, Graz, Austria, the Holywell Music Room, Oxford, Handel & Hendrix, London, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Royal Greenwich International Early Music Festival 2016, the Wigmore Hall as one of the Hall's Chamber Tots Ensembles 2016-17, and Bad Liebenwerda, Germany, in a performance as one of the finalists of the International Graun Competition 2016.
