Enigma14 have come together out of a passion for performing chamber music which is under the horizon of many audiences. The combination of wind, strings and piano offers intense tone colours, and shows the almost vocal power of communication between them, especially with flute, cello and piano.  Lisa Nelsen (flute), Julian Metzger (cello) and Paul Turner (piano)  have found that playing with  each other created an awareness between them that they could almost taste, with a connection that was evident in their performance.  Individually, each has an impressive pedigree that supports their performances and interpretations in concert halls and festivals (Wigmore Hall, St David’s Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, St Johns’ Smith Square, Canterbury Festival, Swaledale Festival to name a few). Their programme includes duos and trios by Weber, JS Bach, Martinu, Alwyn, Fauré, Mendelssohn, Dussek, Beethoven, Prokofiev, Liebermann, Eric Tanguy, Kenneth Hesketh and Malcolm Forsyth.
