12 Ensemble + is a new online series from the 12 Ensemble. Live-streamed from our website and social-media channels, it's a unique opportunity to experience an up-close and intimate view of our work.   

The 12 ENSEMBLE return with their second album Death and the Maiden - a powerful and personal journey through an evolving musical landscape that highlights the unique voice and vision of London’s pioneering un-conducted string orchestra. 

 

With their own arrangement of Schubert’s iconic string quartet at its heart, the record features a brand new commission from newly-appointed ROH Composer in Residence Oliver Leith, alongside a poignant work by Tavener and a tribute to the ensemble’s time in Iceland with a heart-felt arrangement of a song by Sigur Rós

 

Released in January 2020, the record has had over 2 million streams on Spotify alone, making it one of the most listened to UK classical releases this year.
