“Radius are the sum of a remarkable group of parts
and demand to be listened to and engaged with”

Welcome to Radius

Radius was founded in 2006 as a specialist contemporary classical chamber music ensemble based in London, United Kingdom. With a reputation for outstanding musicianship and innovative ideas, the high standard of our performances has been critically acclaimed by the national and musical press.

Radius have appeared at London’s Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre, at festivals and on tour, and have given the first performances of many new works.

Today, Radius specialises in the production of contemporary opera and music theatre works.
