Spokesman Pavlos Carvalho said: “Ensemble Reza began as a group of Sussex-based professional musicians, working predominantly in London with a shared passion to create an exciting musical environment that would benefit our Sussex community.
"Over the past decade we’ve grown in scope, setting up our fabulous community orchestra, a music club, performing free lunchtime and more formal concerts, and running workshops and education programmes. We’re now also Hub Partners of West Sussex Music and Associate Artists of The Hawth Theatre, Crawley. Our ethos throughout has never altered: to bring musicians and audiences of different ages and backgrounds together, changing lives through music.”
Pavlos has been a prize-winner in international music competitions in England, Italy (Carlo Soliva competition), Germany (Koblenz international chamber music competition) and Russia (Taneev competition). He has performed as a solo and chamber musician in venues such as the Purcell Room, Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall and the Teatro dal Verme, Milan and recorded for the BBC.
Pavlos is currently recording the Bach suites for Willowhayne Records and Naxos. The first volume has now been released and is available to purchase. He regularly performs Bach’s complete suites and Beethoven’s sonatas in the Brighton and Chichester Festivals. He has performed concertos with orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic and Southern Pro Musica.
