Eloisa-Fleur founded the 12 ensemble, London's un-conducted string orchestra, with cellist Max Ruisi in 2012. Since forming, the group has rapidly developed a reputation as one of the UK's leading string orchestras. A bold, versatile and virtuosic ensemble, the group is built around a core of twelve of London’s finest and most exhilarating chamber musicians. Always playing without a conductor, the ensemble’s performances combine the raw energy, excitement and creativity of a string quartet with the breathtaking sound afforded by twelve brilliant string players.
The ensemble regularly perform at leading venues throughout the UK and Europe, with recent performances at the Barbican, St George’s Bristol, Berlin Philharmonie and Hamburg Elbphilharmonie plus tours to South Korea, Iceland and Italy. In 2018, the ensemble held a 3-day residency at the Barbican for the Sounds & Visions festival and were the recipients of a PRS 'Resonate' Award. Their acclaimed UK tour Reborn featured works including Schubert’s Death and the Maiden and John Woolrich’s Ulysses Awakes, performed alongside the ensemble’s new short film based on a commission for solo dancer from award-winning choreographer Alexander Whitley. The tour culminated in a full BBC Radio 3 live concert broadcast from St George’s, Bristol.
The 12 ensemble’s debut album Resurrection, released in September 2018, is a powerful collection of four works for strings that reflect the ensemble’s spirit of bringing new energy and exploration to established sounds and ideas. “The 12 ensemble render the entire programme with fearless resolve. An impressive debut.” - Gramophone Magazine.
