Gabrieli Consort

Early Music Ensemble

Gabrieli (also known as the Gabrieli Consort and Players) was founded by English conductor and cellist Paul McCreesh in 1982, and began its life as an early music ensemble; over the years the group has retained its focus on historically-informed performance, but expanded its repertoire to encompass nineteenth- and twentieth-century repertoire, typically performed on authentic instruments of the time.
