Ficino Ensemble was formed by Artistic Director Nathan Sherman in 2012 as a flexible group aiming to perform popular chamber music alongside lesser known works that deserve to be appreciated.

The Quartet features four outstanding musicians who are building an impressive reputation and an exciting repertoire. Their programme is one of the most contrasted in this series: the jollity of the first movement of Op.18, No.6 and the playful eccentricity of the Scherzo, even the rueful Malinconia [melancholy] of the last movement will set the architectural majesty of the C sharp minor quartet in stunning relief.
