BRISTOL-based contemporary chamber quartet Spindle Ensemble has recently released a second album ‘Inkling’, and comes Dorset on on 16th October for two dates with Artsreach, the rural touring arts charity, and one in Somerset.
Spindle Ensemble’s unique sound sits somewhere between classical and contemporary. It is always melodic and is instantly recognisable by the instrumentation, which includes piano, Celtic harp, accordion, violin, marimba, vibraphone and cello.
The quartet was formed in 2016 by leader and composer Daniel Inzani, accompanied by versatile, classically trained musicians who also perform a huge variety of other styles including performing with Charles Hazelwood’s Paraorchestra, Bristol Symphony Orchestra, Mesadorm and many more.
Equally at home performing in concert halls such as the Union Chapel, Southbank Centre and St George’s Bristol to churches, art centres, and community venues across the UK, Spindle Ensemble continue to bring their music to a diverse and ever-growing audience.
Influenced by composers such as Satie, Pärt, Ravel, Reich, Glass and Moondog, listeners might also find the soundtracks of Morricone nestled alongside the minimalist aesthetics of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra.
The concerts are at the village halls at Briantspuddle (07788 100273) on Saturday 16th October and Buckland Newton (01300 345455) on Sunday 17th, and in Somerset at Strode Theatre, Street, on Saturday 23rd.
