Ensemble 415

Led by violinist Chiara Banchini, the internationally renowned Ensemble 415 has established itself as one of the finest baroque ensembles in the world. The group has released more than 20 recordings and has performed at prestigious festivals and concert venues worldwide. Acclaimed by critics and the public alike for its performances, the ensemble is also known for its efforts to broaden the concert repertoire of music from the 17th and 18th centuries.

“It’s the U.S. debut for this seasoned European group,” says Olin concert hall manager Seth Warner. “The Olin audience will never have heard music for Baroque strings played with such finesse and fire.”
