auricle ensemble About

Formed in 2007, the Auricle Ensemble burst into musical life in Scotland with an array of intriguing programmes, virtuoso playing and an approachable and inclusive style to performance. Auricle’s diverse repertoire attracts some of Scotland’s finest professional players who have performed works by Schoenberg, Copland, Britten, Shostakovich, Daugherty, Ives, Walton, Bernstein, Stravinsky, Milhaud, Weill, Strauss, Dukas, Gershwin, Wagner and Prokofiev. Auricle’s first concert saw some of Scotland’s top jazz artists performing alongside classical musicians to a sell-out audience. The ensemble has since received many favourable reviews and invitations to perform around the UK. 2010 saw the start of Auricle’s residency at St Bride’s, Glasgow, and the beginning of its acclaimed two year Mini-Mahler project performing the reduced versions of Mahler’s works that were arranged for Arnold Schoenberg’s Private Music Society (‘Verein’) in Vienna. Other projects included a concert version of Kurt Weill’s ‘Threepenny Opera’ and Peter Maxwell Davies’ music theatre works. Early in 2013, the Auricle Ensemble gave live performances of the soundtrack by Aaron Copland to the pioneering 1939 American film ‘The City’. 2015 sees UK tours of their popular Façade performance.
Auricle is represented throughout the UK by Derek Warby Artist Management.
