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.

The breadth of their musical experience creates 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. As a founder member, we are delighted that Nicholas Daniel, one of the UK's most distinguished soloists and an important ambassador for music will form part of the Haffner.

Their varied programme is likely to provide enchantment and excitement in equal measure
