Three Strange Angels

Three Strange Angels

Richard Benjafield & Chris Brannick  percussion

Three Strange Angels first gigged at Camden’s Bartok in 2003. Following an appearance at the BBC John Cage Musicircus in January 2004, the group’s first concert was at the Royal Festival Hall’s Rhythmsticks festival in July 2004. Three Strange Angels’ music has strong roots in rhythmic contemporary music. Led by Richard Benjafield, it represents a renewal of his creative partnership with Chris Brannick, a co-founder of Ensemble Bash in 1990. Three Strange Angels’ house composers are creative guru Peter Wiegold and former LSO animateur Rachel Leach.



Founded in 1997, CHROMA is a dynamic, critically acclaimed chamber ensemble featuring some of Britain's most outstanding musicians, known for the passion it brings to contemporary works, its vivid renderings of classic pieces and its diverse participation/learning activity.

Following its debut at the Purcell Room CHROMA has become most closely associated with the performance of contemporary music and has forged close links with many prominent British composers through many premières and collaborations.
