Using both modern and period instruments, POCKET SINFONIA was formed to recreate the atmosphere of 19th-century living room parties, where the intimacy of chamber music performance could be applied to orchestral-scale pieces. This is made possible via various transcriptions by composers of the 19th Century, including Hummel and Clementi. Pocket Sinfonia has since also made their own arrangements, applying spontaneity and vigour to creations that are not merely smaller versions of great pieces, but are new and artistic in their own right.

The group has performed across the UK and Europe including the Brighton Early Music Festival. Pocket Sinfonia was a REMA (European Early Music Network) Showcase Artist (2020), Brighton Early Music Festival Young Artists (2018-19), and winner of the St Martin-in-the-Field’s Chamber Competition Audience Prize. They have recently recorded their debut CD – the Symphony Reimagined.
