The Bristolian collective’s compositions are a rich mix of jazz, folk and classical music with cinematic overtones.
Taking inspiration from great modern composers like Steve Reich and Philip Glass alongside post-romantics Satie and Debussy, Spindle Ensemble is a group rooted in spontaneity and improvisation. The collective is comprised of pianist and bandleader Daniel Inzani, violinist Caelia Lunniss, tuned percussionist Harriet Riley and cellist Jo Silverston; all accomplished and classically trained musicians of the highest calibre.
Their new album Bea (named after Silverston's newly born daughter) was recorded in Grand Chapel Studios, a converted village chapel in the heart of Bedfordshire with engineer Michael Pearce.
Bea is a masterful piece of work filled with musical innovation and pastoral aspiration performed by musicians at the top of their game. All in all a perfect demonstration of exciting and modern classical music.
