A chamber music group, established in 1995, which plays modern music on baroque instruments.
This is the FM broadcast (on BBC Radio 3, 13 March 2002) of a concert given at the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh by the Ensemble Ambrosius of works by themselves, FZ and Ligeti. They are an interesting bunch of guys who like to play contemporary music on Baroque period instruments, and have gained approval from the ZFT for their arrangements of some of FZ's works.
