Houston Friends of Chamber Music presents Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields
Houston Friends of Chamber Music
The London-based Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble was created in 1967 from the larger Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields Orchestra to perform larger chamber works — from quintets to octets. The ensemble performs with players who customarily work together, instead of the usual configuration of string quartet and guests. With annual visits to the major musical centers of Europe, the group tours as a string octet, string sextet and in other configurations.
