Primavera, as one of Britain’s finest chamber ensembles, has created an enviable reputation with an accolade of reviews at international festivals across Britain and Europe, alongside many appearances on the South Bank and Wigmore Hall. Formed in 1986 by its artistic director, violinist, Paul Manley, the name of the group is based on the Italian word for spring, reflecting the joie de vivre that these musicians bring to their performances.

Besides engagements, Primavera has created its own concert series at some of the finest country houses in the UK, which led to two TV series entitled Music in Mansions for Meridian Television.
“In the new recording by the Primavera Chamber Ensemble, Mendelssohn’s Octet unfolds with warmth and naturalness… The whole performance is suffused with sunshine and well-being…crowned with some of the loveliest fiddle playing you will ever hear.”
