Palisander prides itself on presenting imaginative, historical programmes with a wide range of repertoire; performing largely from memory, on recorders up to 6 feet tall. Graduates of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Palisander has quickly established itself as a vibrant young ensemble. The quartet is delighted to have been selected for the prestigious St John’s Smith Square Young Artists’ scheme 2016-2017. In 2015, the group was selected for Brighton Early Music Festival’s ‘Early Music Live!’ scheme; ‘the leading training and apprenticeship scheme for young early music ensembles’. Palisander's new children's show, Dr Dee's Daughter and the Philosopher's Stone, is a collaboration with theatre and puppetry company Rust and Stardust. The project will tour in 2017, with support from the Arts Council England.
