Louise Strickland - Ensembles

Louise is a founder member of two renowned ensembles.


The Clarino Ensemble

The Clarino Ensemble (Claire Hawkes, Louise Strickland, Sarah Thurlow) perform on replicas of clarinets and basset horns used in late 18th and early 19th centuries. They capture the sound world created by the great classical composers and play works in a historically informed style.

Recent performances include concerts at Rockfield House, Somerset; St. Mary’s Church, Stapleford; the Queen’s Theatre, Barnstaple; All Saints’ Hertford and Honiton Festival.

The Clarino Ensemble is available for concert series, education workshops, private and corporate events, dinners and weddings. To make an enquiry or booking, please click here.

Louise formed Concentus VII in 2005 with the oboist Belinda Paul. Concentus VII performs Baroque music for wind instruments with voice and continuo.

Recent performances have included concerts for Handel House Museum, London and Stichtung Musica Antica da Camera, Holland.

Concentus VII is currently collaborating with Green Man Press, Richmond, to perform newly published works of Baroque music. The ensemble's second CD featuring music by Handel, Scarlatti, Lotti and Mancini is available on the Resonus Classics Label.
