Improviso is a dynamic young quartet who met at the Royal College of Music in London and have been exploring historically informed improvisation and 17th-18th century chamber music together since March 2017. Since then some highlights have included performances at St James's Piccadilly, the Wigmore Hall (as one of the Hall's Chamber Tots ensembles), the Jubilee Hall in Aldeburgh, the Brighton Early Music Festival, and in a live broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune programme.

In 2018 they enjoyed two residencies, at Snape Maltings and at the Cultural Centre in Ambronay, France as well as performing in Pavia, Italy, as part of Ghislierimusica’s Barocco Fuori festival, in the Utrecht Early Music Festival as semi-finalists in the International van Wassenaer Competition 2018, and in the Festival d'Ambronay, France. In December 2018 they embarked on a mini tour of their new Christmas programme, taking it to the York Christmas Early Music Festival, and to venues in Oxford, Cambridge, and London. Improviso were selected as a beneficiary of the eeemerging project 2017-2018 (Emerging European Ensembles), were Brighton Early Music Festival Young Artists 2017-2018, are currently Live Music Now artists, and were selected for the Stroud Green Festival’s Young Ensemble Scheme.

In 2019 Improviso looks forward to a busy performing schedule in the UK and abroad, including concerts at St Martin's in the Fields, St James' Church Piccadilly, the London Festival of Baroque Music at St John's Smith Square, the Buxton Festival, and the Brighton Early Music Festival.
