The Haffner Wind Ensemble is one of Britain’s leading chamber ensembles and one of the most established wind quintets in Britain. Each member of the ensemble is a chamber musician and a soloist as well as a principal of the Britten Sinfonia; in addition, all are experienced teachers in the UK and abroad. The breadth of their musical experience as individuals and their extensive work together in the Britten Sinfonia combine to create a secure and fluent ensemble, one which plays with freshness and vivacity and which excels not only in the classics of the wind repertoire but also in contemporary music.
The ensemble is regularly heard on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM and other broadcasting organisations and has toured extensively throughout the UK and overseas including appearances at major festivals such as Aldeburgh, Cheltenham, Bath, Stockholm and the Proms.
