Pocket Sinfonia reinterprets orchestral masterpieces with the fresh spontaneity and intimacy of a chamber group.
Inspired by the transcriptions by J. N. Hummel and M. Clementi of Mozart, Beethoven and Haydn, Pocket Sinfonia has created new arrangements of orchestral works and operas by composers including Mozart, Salieri, Grieg, Prokofiev, Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky. They perform these works alongside pre-existing transcriptions and traditional chamber works on both modern and historical instruments.
Pocket Sinfonia were a REMA (European Early Music Network) Showcase Artist (2020), Brighton Early Music Festival Young Artists (2018-19), and winners of the St. Martin-in-the-Field’s Chamber Competition Audience Prize. They have been supported by Continuo Foundation (2021, 2022).
Pocket Sinfonia has appeared across the UK and Norway including at Oslo Kammermusikkfestival and Brighton Early Music Festival. They have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 from the London International Early Music Exhibition and made their debut in Germany in a concert and radio broadcast for WDR 3 Alte Musik in 2022.
