String Dimensions, founded by Bogdan Vacarescu in 2017, is a London-based chamber ensemble of international soloists.
String Dimensions is no ordinary chamber ensemble. United by a mutual interest in performing music all too rarely heard in today’s concert programmes, they have given the UK premieres of Antonio Bazzini’s works and perform neglected repertoire such as Fritz Kreisler’s String Quartet and works by Enescu and Cherubini. Their programmes also include original arrangements of well-known classical works for string duos, trios, quartets and larger groups.
The ensemble features Allegri Quartet cellist Vanessa Lucas-Smith, Canadian violist Brooke Day, Japanese violinist Akiko Ishikawa and it is led by the Romanian violinist Bogdan Vacarescu.
They all perform internationally in the most prestigious festivals and venues such as London’s Kings Place, Sydney Opera House, Cheltenham Music and Melbourne International Arts Festivals, as well as on radio and television worldwide.
