Harriet, Meg and Milos have crafted a programme unique to Kosmos, inspired by music from all around the globe. Wild Gypsy fiddling, emotive Jewish and Greek music glide seamlessly into hot-blooded tango, alongside interpretations of Japanese, Polish and Sephardic songs, new arrangements by and for the ensemble, and with references to classical composers including Bach, Brahms and Sarasate.
Kosmos Ensemble is re-defining the relationship between classical and world music. The trio has gathered accolades from all over the world. United by a shared passion for improvisation, music from around the globe as well as the rigours of classical training, each member of Kosmos is an international soloist in their own right and brings individual flavour to the group. "telepathic rapport, dazzling virtuosity, serious scholarship, intellectual curiosity and impeccable musicianship.
"I defy you not to be mesmerised." Richard Morrison, chief music critic, The Times
