Ensemble 10/10


Since its first concert in 1997 (at 10.10 pm) the Ensemble has established itself as a significant part of cultural life in North West England, and Liverpool in particular. Founded by clarinettist Nicholas Cox and cellist Hilary Browing to address a gap in programming new music at the Liverpool Philharmonic, 10/10 made its debut outside Liverpool in 2000. its first seasons included masterworks by many leading 20th century composers.

The ensemble has worked closely with students of composition at the Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts, and has commissioned new works from several ex-LIPA musicians. Conductors working with 10/10 have included Gerard Schwarz, Clark Rundell, Baldur Brönnemann, Garry Walker and Matthew Cooney; the group has also worked with Joanna Macgregor, Valdine Anderson, David Horne and Rejects Revenge Theatre Group.
