Founded in 2011, The Goldfield Ensemble are now the resident musicians of Goldfield Productions, a charitable incorporated organisation.
Highly collaborative and relentlessly curious, Goldfield Productions was created to make adventures in sound; to find ways of presenting music and art that transform the everyday into the extraordinary and reawaken our ears.
The production company grew from the success of the Ensemble and their growing belief that music can and should be experienced in many different ways to enrich lives. In 2018, Goldfield created and toured their critically acclaimed Hansel & Gretel (a nightmare in 8 scenes) commissioning new poetry from Simon Armitage, chamber music from Matthew Kaner and art / puppetry from Clive Hicks-Jenkins. Hansel & Gretel premiered at Cheltenham Music Festival and touring to 9 UK venues with a London premiere at Milton Court Concert Hall (Barbican) and subsequent BBC Radio 3 broadcast.
