Ensemble Mirage explores and programmes music from the whole range of Clarinet-String-Piano chamber music; from duos to octets. They are delighted to be selected for the 2016/17 St John's Smith Square Young Artists' Scheme during which they will present an exciting and emotive variety of concerts for different-sized ensembles alongside newly commissioned works.



Ensemble Mirage evolved from the award winning ensemble Trio Mirage which formed in early 2014; with clarinettist Matthew Scott, violinist Julia Pusker and pianist Alexandra Vaduva. Having met earlier in their studies at the Royal Academy of Music, they began exploring the diverse range of repertoire their trio setting offered. They soon won the Academy's Harold Craxton Prize and were awarded a 2015/16 Chamber Music Fellowship; during which they worked with Academy composers to produce new works for the ensemble alongside chamber recitals.

To explore larger repertoire Trio Mirage began collaborating with other musicians, including violist Ugne Tiskute and cellist Tatiana Chernyshova. Through individual member recital schemes such as the Countess of Munster Musical Trust Recital Scheme and Making Music AYCA, Recital Scheme; they have performed for Music Societies and Festivals around the UK. Recent highlights include performances in Bristol and The Two Moors Festival, plus China Exchange and the Norfolk and Norwich Festival 2016.
