Praised as "magnificent" by Vladimir Jurowski, the Jigsaw Players are a compelling group of professional musicians who have been bringing exceptional classical and jazz concerts as well as educational projects to Wimbledon, Raynes Park and Merton area since 2008.

They have gained the support of the local community as well as from prestigious Patrons such as Principal Conductor of London Philharmonic Orchestra, Vladimir Jurowski, internationally-acclaimed pianist, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Grammy-winning violist, Kim Kashkashian and two world-famous cellists, both passionate advocates of music education, Julian Lloyd-Webber (Principal, Birmingham Conservatoire), the renowned Steven Isserlis, CBE and globally-recognised conductor Paavo Järvi. 

The musicians for each programme are drawn from a pool of players, all of them international prize-winners, members of Britain's most prestigious orchestras (Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra & Philharmonia Orchestra) or of internationally-distinguished chamber music groups (the Doric, Hieronymus, Navarra and Piatti String Quartets and, amongst others, the Aronowitz Ensemble).

  • "I have enjoyed all of the many Jigsaw Players concerts that I have attended. The young musicians are obviously the future generation of 'Maestros' in the classical music industry. Not just excellent players, but it is definite that several will end up leading orchestras and having great careers. I hope, and truly expect, that the Jigsaw Players will go from strength to strength. I will also recommend my friends and colleagues to take the time to attend one of their concerts and persuade themselves that they will also attend many more."  Wb123 via qype
